Cézanne Reconstructed

In Cézanne Reconstructed, the artist and poet Paul takes eight works by Cézanne (L’Estaque, Melting Snow, Mont Sainte-Victoire and the Viaduct of the Arc River Valley, Mont Sainte-Victoire with Large Pine, Portrait of Gustave Geffroy, Madame Cézanne with Unbound Hair, The Basket of Apples, The Bathers, and The Card Players) and abstracts them through pixelation to reveal average color distributions over given areas of the image, from the entirety of the painting as one solid color to a “full resolution” image of the painting. Through these eleven stages of resolution, attention is called to the question of “what constitutes adequate reproduction?”

In its manifold aspects, Cézanne Reconstructed can be viewed variously as a color study, as an examination of graphic reproduction, and as a work of visual poetry.

Cézanne Reconstructed is part of the Reconstructed series of art books (Bosch, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Rousseau).
