About the artwork

This piece was made by the artist last summer in Victoriaville, Quebec with the Centre d’art Jacques et Michel Auger, an exhibition center dedicated to contemporary visual and media arts. The theme of the project was wasteland and agriculture residing together, the artist created an art installation with lichen drawings on canvas in the middle of a wooded area, which inspired the piece.

“I prefer to represent landscapes that are not normally shown in painting and are not necessarily picturesque."
