Etat Montagne

Support: Mixed media
Dimensions: 50 x 56 cm
Mixed mediaBy inserting lights into a variety of surfaces (paper, metal, wood, Plexiglas) Mélanie Vincent questions our gaze, assaulting the retina. From this blinding emerges another dimension: an impaired projection space. The image is disturbed, the subject is lit up and the landscape opens up. The flat surface reveals an illusionary depth that both tricks and dazzles the eye. In État Montagne, the paper in relief (embossing) is brought out by the cutting light of a florescent tube. An invisible mountain appears, haloed in bright red through the play of the relief and the depth of the paper’s surface.
