Jean-Luc Mylayne at the Parrish Art Museum

No. 186, January February 2004, 2004

In 2009, the Parrish Art Museum presented Jean-Luc Mylayne’s first solo American museum exhibition. Though he began working in 1976, Mylayne has created no more than 150 unique photographs.

Ten years later, this new show Jean-Luc Mylayne: A Matter of Place reveals the artist's personal view of landscape and nature. On view from March 24 to July 28, the exhibition features nine monumentally scaled photographs made in New Mexico and Texas. The latter juxtaposes natural and man-made, stillness and motion, calm and tension within poetic and mysterious photographs.

Curated by Terrie Sultan, Parrish Director, A Matter of Place is part of Parrish Perspectives—a series of concentrated exhibitions that offer the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.

Born in Amiens, France in 1946, Jean-Luc Mylayne has had major solo exhibitions at Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Musée d’Art Moderne, Saint-Etienne; the Photographers’ Gallery, London; the ARC/Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; and the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Florida.
