Drawing with charcoal, Caroline Corbasson cuts, layers, and duplicates images of earth and space to convey the vast mysteries of the world and the universe beyond. Geological formations and celestial galaxies stretch, twist and split in the French artist’s works. Despite the enduring depths conveyed in her images, Corbasson’s choice of material suggests a state of impermanence within the universe. This interest in astronomical time is further apparent in the way Corbasson references archival renderings of space, such as Galileo’s 17th century drawings and late 20th century images taken by the Hubble Telescope, while also using contemporary and nuanced composition and display methods.
