ABOUT THE WORK
Joani Tremblay uses constructed images of landscapes excerpted from social media, advertisements, architecture sites and field research to paint simulated scenes and surreal and abstract landscapes that interrogate our perception of place. The artist assembles found images using digital collage techniques then paints the composition onto canvas. Referencing the digital representation of landscape in our times, Tremblay inverts and flatten perspectives. Fragments of built environments such as thresholds and architecture are used as framing devices to crop, obscure, and layer the landscape, unbuilding and rebuilding. Forms repeat and translate, referencing the speed at which we access content in our digital time.
