In this case, for me, Marie introduces her theme with her envelope. I am immediately primed for mapping the skies. I feel myself checking the instrument panel in anticipation, of watching the world turn to matchoook houses with postage stamp fields.
(I see) topography of a city from high. Windows on the world. A transept of space.
The broken geometry of a vista, our memories, traces of our lives imprinted on what we see.
I love the shapes and the colours, quilts of light.
Five or six years ago I bought the piece below from an artist who was a resident at the Heliker Lahotan Foundation (on Cranberry Island); for me, Marie's piece conjures up a similar sound, a similar mood. For a moment I am an explorer or maybe a spy and this is my landscape. Beautiful!
