Foreground Notes

Dans la nature, l’éctriture (1994 – ongoing)
In nature, writing. This long-term project finds a proto-language written in the overlooked and unremarkable contours of nature, and includes drawings, video, photography and pigment prints. Each drawing sequence is a record of rapid notations, a loose syntax of looking and seeing, started in the wild and finished in the studio. The standard approach to landscape has lost the ability to inform us – the goal of this exploration is to see the familiar as if for the first time.
