Lynn Bianchi’s work is suspended between Henri Cartier-Bresson’s idea that to photograph is to hold one’s breath with all faculties converged in an effort to capture fleeting reality, and the belief that flowing processes that transcend reality cannot be entirely captured by static images. Through her multimedia approach, she captures the natural world illustrating our motivations and emotions, looking for the precise moment when mastering a static or moving image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy. The perpetual movements of an ocean, or the endless variations of a skyscape, reflect in Bianchi’s work our shifting internal gestures and motions – in a constant movement from still to moving images where the eternal is reconciled with the quotidian.
