The work of artist Ysabel LeMay involves otherworldly images, digitally composed panoramas of natural splendor so vividly realized that one feels drawn to step into them. Lemay’s innovative technique is a lengthy process during which hundreds of photographs are taken and light and visual properties are attuned. She then assembles one detail at a time in a painterly fashion to forma single composition. While the technique is high-tech, LeMay’s hypercollage process is instinctual and organic, allowing each piece to dictate its own destiny. Now approaching new technological horizons, LeMay nonetheless seeks authenticity of experience over novelty. With the moments in time and spaces in the imagination she creates, she opens the door to her other worlds.
LeMay’s works have been shown at venues such as the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in San Antonio, Couture Galleri in Stockholm, Verve Gallery in Santa Fe, Living with Art Gallery in Hong Kong, and Artitled Contemporary Art in Amsterdam, among others.
