Christophe Stibio’s new series is a carefully formulated non-allegorical response to landscape. The strips of shredded documents layered onto his work prompt images that keep moving, mutating and self-transforming. These paintings do not conform to any pre-existing idea of what the landscape should be. Instead they choose to render its multiplicity — not just fear-invoking magnitude, but also its fragility and intimacy.
