A strip of blue-green viridian next to the blue-black horizon line separates a steely sky from sand white ground. Suggestive of a tropical beach and ocean, the landscape approaches abstraction through the use of time lapse photography. The image was captured while the photographer was in motion. Labbe's large format chromogenic prints are on archival paper, mounted on dibond (an aluminum composite panel) and faced cleanly with plexiglas. A stainless steel channel is mounted to the work on the back for easy installation. Each print is unique. Labbe only makes 3 variations (cropped in different proportion) from each photograph. Québec born Etienne Labbé trained as a molecular biologist in Montréal and Toronto. As an artist he has worked in several mediums – sculpture, watercolour, mixed media and photography. His work consists of rapidly shifting explorations of scale, colour, light and mood. Movement is used as a creative and transformative force by which ordinary landscapes are altered. Labbé’s work is held in private collections across Canada.
