Etienne Labbe is an accomplished photographer, and his photographs are in collections in many cities in North America.
Québec born, Labbé trained as a molecular biologist in Montréal and Toronto. As an artist he has worked in several mediums – sculpture, watercolour, mixed media, photography and unique pieces of furniture.
His photographs consist of rapidly shifting explorations of scale, colour, light and mood. Movement is used as a creative and transformative force by which ordinary landscapes are altered.
This particular series is taken with a slow shutter speed, while the photographer is in motion. The large format chromogenic prints are on archival paper, mounted on dibond, and faced cleanly with acrylic. A stainless steel channel is mounted to the work on the back for easy installation.
Each print is unique. Labbe only makes 3 variations (cropped in different proportion) from each photograph. The works are 1/1. To see the works installed, a video on Etienne Labbe's work has been posted on Youtube and our gallery site.
