Diane Levesque
The narrative structure in my work has evolved through many stages. The objects I depict function as screens for psychological projection.
I often use the cabinet of curiosity as a model for the placement of the seemingly random array of objects. Within that model, the selection of each object follows the art of memory in which random things trigger associations to arise in the viewer’s mind. The turbulent relationship between the figure and the objects surrounding it is intentionally exaggerated.
