My earlier works focus primarily on urban facades, layers of peeling paint succumbing to decay, mold, and rust. The paintings capture an ongoing process at a single moment in time. Later I began superimposing image upon image—primarily abstract rural landscapes—almost as if a camera were taking a picture of the same area hundreds of times with a sole negative. As light changes, storms pass, people walk, they leave behind a trace, their movement—if not they themselves—recorded on the painting surface. These paintings also explore vastness. They continue in every direction; we only see a certain part of them. My current works continue to explore constant movement. I am now interested in expressing the potential energy of situations where changes are about to happen or might happen. The paintings are a bit off balance and meant to be unsettling. Some transformations have already occurred and are noted on the canvas; others have yet to take place, but may be inferred by the viewer. Cyrille Allannic New York, 2004
