Mark Fox and the William and Sarah Ross Soter curator of photography Tim Wride discuss the artist’s video installation in relation to Fox’s artistic process. Fox spent three months as an artist-in-residence on the grounds of the Monet Foundation at Giverny and searched for a way to capture Claude Monet’s iconic garden from a fresh perspective. A recent gift to the Norton Museum of Art through the generosity of Beth Rudin DeWoody and Joanne Leonhardt Cassullo (through the Dorothea Leonhardt Fund at the Communities Foundation of Texas), “Giverny: Journal of an Unseen Garden” is a five-channel, high-definition underwater video that pays homage to Monet’s practice of studying the effects of shifting light on a single subject and captures the hourly and seasonal changes in different locations of the waters. The multiple screens resemble the long, horizontal orientation of the large “Nymphéas (Water Lilies)” series of paintings Monet created for the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris.
