These works center on a small lake near Castelnau de Montmiral. Naturally, both the lake’s surface and what was being reflected in the water changed constantly due to a combination of movements of the wind, fish, insects, falling leaves, clouds and sunlight. The challenge for me was to translate this symphony of light and movement in terms of static and confined images. I was particularly intrigued by the dynamics of the relationship between the surface of the picture, the surface of the lake and the surfaces of the objects reflected in the lake.
