Lauren Marsolier: Dislocation
July 7 through September 3, 2016
Marsolier’s photo-montages are assembled from imagery compiled by the artist at assorted geographical locations over spans of time and manifest surreal non-places where evidence of human activity is simultaneously present yet are devoid of inhabitants. Her crisply composed images of buildings and man-made landscapes bathed in otherworldly light suggest time has seemingly been paused. “Months or years often separate the capture of elements juxtaposed in my landscapes,” Marsolier explains. “This approach is not unlike that of the many painters who would make sketches at different locations to use as reference for their future paintings.” Marsolier uses her data bank of collected imagery to construct mysterious and psychologically imbued images that blur the distinction between the natural and fabricated.
