Franco American visual artist Vicky Colombet’s work is an exploration of nature and abstraction. By using the reductive and repetitive aspects of Minimalist thinking, her images strip themselves of all formal elements. While Colombet questions what can be read as landscape, her surfaces capture a fleeting moment in the life of nature and suggests contemplation.
The French born American artist Vicky Colombet works across a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, digital prints, photography and etched glass.
She is the recipient of The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2014.
Vicky Colombet’s landscapes translated in glass evokes translucent drawings of light suspended in space. Using sandblasting glass becomes a metaphor of the wind and the elements eroding and carving over time. The glass translates the ephemeral nature of things, the light ever-changing what we see.
