Capucine Bourcart

My work takes as its inspiration the fragmentary details and varied textures of everyday objects. By the use of a mix of techniques such as manual and digital collage, photomontage, and painting, I attempt to bring out their idiosyncratic and off-beat beauty to counter the blandness of perfection.

Brought into final form with the medium of photography, it is always my goal to create an acceptable tension between the straightforward, though formally disassembled representation of the subject, and the abstract composition of the whole.

By focusing on intimate detail and the specific character of a chosen subject matter I hope that my work acts as a kind of magnifying glass that compels the viewer to not only “look” but to “observe.”

Statement of Walls cuttings

(6 artworks proposed for Aqua Art Miami - Modular wall)

Drawing on more than 4,500 photographic prints - detail shots of the walls of Manhattan I took between 2008 and 2012 - I have cut them into a variety of geometric shapes or monochromes and assembled them into abstract collages.

Playing with patterns of texture, color, and tone I have sought to create fresh rhythms and harmonies from the tired walls of the city.

This collection marks my first move from digital to manual work.

Biography :

Originally from Alsace, France, she has called Harlem, New York her home for the past ten years.

Primarily self-taught in photography, she has refined her skills through classes at the International

Center of Photography in New York, where she was also an Assistant Teacher. She is fascinated

by details, inspired by personal interactions, and she structures her creative process with visual

fragments that she collects in my daily life, travels, and relationships. She uses these fragments to

create her photographic collages.

Her works have been featured in Le Temps, Destination and Le Journal des Arts. Her work has been

exhibited and resides in private and museum collections in Europe and in New York. She was featured

in FLUX Art Fair, May 2015 and was an award-winning artist at FLUX Public Art Projects, May 2016.
