Interested in the concept of imagination and travel, both physical and reflexive, Maude Tapin articulates her approach around the idea of escape and identity. Working mainly from photographs taken to immortalize inspiring views, she reinterprets her images in order to share certain perceptions and thus lead the viewer to travel, reflect and get lost in their own thoughts. The distinct nature of the places and materials explored is a central aspect of his work. She tends to honor and highlight their experiences through the creation of very detailed works, imbued with tranquility and nostalgia.
