A cosmic 'mise en scène' placing the gods back in the sky.
"The closer I came to the water, the more I sensed another perspective that was celestial rather than terrestrial..... Through the feeling of total immersion in
another universe, I began to photograph the statues in parallel
with abstract water imagery for the creation of the
theatrical compositions of
Part II of this project".
The mythological masterpieces of Versailles are another essential element in the personnification of power by Louis XIV, the Sun King.
In Part II, the gods of Versailles are placed into an alternative
extra-dimensional space,where water is in fusion with light,
evoking the invisible forces around us and
the vast intangible nature of
the order of things.
See Part III for examples of modular abstractions that may be incorporated into
the composite imagery of this project.
