Caroline Clerc

1967*, Los Angeles

Caroline Clerc is a Los Angeles based artist working in photography. Her work posits landscapes as complex sites of recognition and cultural construction.  Her process involves making photographs from walks or hikes then compositing these images, via digital methodologies, into a new artificial, yet familiar, image. Her work problematizes the act of looking and disrupts the idea of understanding one’s relationship to the environment or to nature. She is interested in subverting order through wandering and reconfiguring, and to confound the traditional subject/object relationship by moving beyond a single viewpoint to present multiple perspectives. Her MFA is from University of California, Santa Barbara and she is faculty at the University of Southern California. Her work has been exhibited in the United States and Canada with residencies in Mexico, Norway, Italy, Canada, New York and Montana.
