Blurring the lines of photography, painting, and sculpture, French-Canadian artist Rachelle Bussières employs experimental photographic processes and materials to fabricate abstract geomorphic images that explore time and the changing natural world. By investigating the transformation of photographic paper through layering materials in the darkroom, her creative process mimics the earth’s geological stratification. The result is is an imaginative dialog between topographical images of the natural world and photographic materials. Much like an action painting, the process ultimately defines the artwork.
