Jonathan Forrest - "Building Blocks of Colour"
Yechel Gagnon - "Midwinter Thaw"
Works from exhibition JOHN FOLSOM
April 3, 2003
- April 26, 2003
John Folsom captures raw images with his camera and then digitally alters them in order to build his own version of the landscape. Upon returning to the studio John Folsom pieces together these images using basic elements of historical painting, sublime images created from the placement of wood, water, and rock. The final image is comprised of photographic paper adhered to wood. The works are further enhanced with paint and wax, but the pigment is applied in a manner that suggests digital enhancement.
