The Salons are lithographic plates from 1919 that have been physically cut and overlayed onto paintings, ultimately collapsing the views of period rooms from the The Palais de L’Elysee and Hotels in Paris.
The cuts are binoculars into a separate realm where grey toned perspectival fields challenge the wide gamut of color space. These re-imagined places are periscopic viewports into the non-dimensional systems. The historical precision of these drawings confronts the automatic, expressive and inexact sensibility of the paintings.
