"Laurie Tennent; Bouquets - Technology and New American Photography"
2006-02-22 until 2006-03-24
Galerie Mamia Bretesché
Paris, , FR France

American Laurie Tennent offers 15 photographs produced by scanning, using a digitalized technological method instead of a camera by means of a very sophisticated technique. The result is amazing and spectacular. The presentation is in line with traditional photography. However several degrees of ambiguity remain. Ambiguity in the choice of the subject. Here, flowers and bouquets portrayed  in the traditional manner of a classical painting. Photography? Painting? The illusion is perfect. Ambiguity also lies in the subject: Flowers, fragile by nature but whose strength of form creates the impression of a strong sensuality.

Her work also seeks to expose the complexity of masculine and feminine characteristics, of fierce intimacy and strong sensuality. It is this duality that her subject matter explores. In exaggerating delicate natural forms, she offers the spectator the opportunity to be confronted and submerged by the objects: Morning Glory, Lotus, Canadian Thistle, Poppy, Eucalyptus …This is technology in the service of nature and beauty in it’s most pure state.

Laurie Tennent is a photographer who is conscious of the current preoccupations in society, the environment, nature closeup and from afar, from the most simplistic and fragile occurrences.

The prints are done by the artist, the impressions are made on watercolor paper of 110 x 80 cm, which gives the works a typical granulation and voluptuous relief.

Laurie Tennent, an American born in 1961 in Michigan, USA, is professional photographer, who has been a member of the world of photography since the 1980s. A retrospective of her work was held in2004. Her works appear in numerous public and private collections and museums.
