Marc Blane

Blane expands upon the concept of sublimity. He transposes the idea of the ruin into the late 20th century, when decay and disuse represent, not consciously composed counterpoints to pastoralism, but entire vistas and substantial sections of the landscape. The fact that Blane reinterprets this landscape so thoughtfully - that he does not simply declare himself the "author" of urban ruins - gives his work an intelligence that nostalgia or sentimentality alone can never evoke.
