    About The Work

    Fallen N°531 is from Tanya Marcuse’s series of large-scale landscape (ground) images—studies of abundance and decay, fecundity and entropy. Rendered in rich color, her tapestry-like photographs capture seemingly found views of the forest floor that she constructs over days and weeks using rotting fruits and leaves, along with various blossoms and insects, weaving still lives in a natural environment. Marcuse creates lavish tableaux perched between the plausible and implausible and between the painterly and the photographic. They evoke beauty and sensuality as well as the duality of life and death

    Marcuse says of this work, “Hieronymus Bosch has been my primary inspiration for this project. His medieval way of describing may seem an unlikely guide for a photographer in 2013, yet I am riveted by the spatial and conceptual tension in his paintings between fragment and whole, weight and weightlessness, paradise and hell.”
