    Isabelle Cornaro employs painting, sculpture, installation, and film in her quest to challenge the way viewers perceive art objects. Her multimedia works orchestrate careful juxtapositions that pay tribute to and reinvent traditional modes of representation. Emphasizing depth of field, larger objects are placed in the foreground and smaller ones in the background, in accordance with the traditional rules of perspective, at which Poussin excelled. “All the objects relate to the representation of nature and the construction of an image,” Cornaro explains.
