The selection of Marie Lannoo's works chosen for this exhibit consist of both paintings and paper works that clearly embrace both the idea of "Footprint" and "Imprint". A footprint can be an impression left behind by a shoe or a foot or it can be the space taken up on a surface by an object. An imprint can be both physical and psychological- the act of impressing or stamping a mark (or outline) on a surface or it can be the fixing of an idea firmly in someone's mind. In terms of the footprint, Marie Lannoo has taken careful steps in layering, banding and marking color on the surfaces of her paintings in order to draw the viewer in deeper and closer. Her glossy surfaces allow a reflection of the surroundings, including the viewer as a temporary imprint on the painting. Individually, each piece has it's own distinctive markings and brush strokes, each viewing slightly different. As a group the paintings create continuous motion, urging the viewer to move this way and that, closer and farther away, each time inflicting a different image upon the viewer.
