UBS 12 x 12: Jessica Labatte

December 14, 2010

Free

Jessica Labatte, the 100th artist to participate in the UBS 12 x 12 series, explores the color and shape of everyday objects and materials to create an installation that combines the traditions of collage and still life with the illusionistic tendencies of photography.

For her UBS 12 x 12 exhibition, Labatte employs elaborate compositional strategies and the careful juxtaposition of found paper objects, to create sophisticated images with a confusing sense of spatial depth. She manipulates the picture plane using a large format camera to emphasize a deceptively flattened space. On first look, her three-dimensional arrangements often appear two-dimensional.
