Jean-Marc Bustamante first gained recognition with the release of his "Tableaux" series in 1977, comprised of 120 color photographs depicting desolate landscapes reminiscent of traditional landscape paintings. Throughout his practice, Bustamante has engaged in dialogue between photography and painting as well as painting and sculpture. In a recent series of works entitled “Peintures,” Bustamante applied paint to a transparent Plexiglas surface, the contours of the paint throwing shadows upon the wall behind the work to generate a visual experience that is simultaneously flat and dimensional.
