La Souffrance et L'Aventure Series Majestic Landscapes Series selected graphics 1997-2012
The works in the La Souffrance et LAventure Series and Majestic Landscapes Series are defined by dichotomy between symbol and language. Subjects as diverse as landscapes, animals, plants, and invented constructs are coupled with words or phrases that appear beneath the image. The resulting conceptual line between the act of reading the text and imagining the place (based on the pictorial space) becomes ambiguous and serves to prod the viewer to construct meaning, or even a storyline. The purely descriptive titles, inscribed in pencil in the lower left margin, further blur the distinctions.
