Blane De St. Croix

20 Jay Street, Studio M05

I have a deep wonder of and passion for the natural landscape; it has been a consistent aspect of my artistic output. A defining characteristic of every locality, landscape is often a primary narrative of a place’s past and present—from its creation and modification by natural forces to its use and alteration by mankind. The landscape crosses all political borders and man-made boundaries. In communities around the globe, the local landscape is an emblem of pride or a symbol of man’s destructive power. But my feelings are not unique: landscape remains deep in the consciousness of all societies throughout history. What is unique is how the landscape is specifically addressed by my work, which is built around a core of research-intensive creative investigation and interdisciplinary experimentation about current environmental issues.
