Cascade du Lac Noir (2013)

"Anouk Mercier utilises visual fragments from British Romantic landscapes to create dramatic, fantastical works. Her colours hint at 19th century paintings, but are also injected with an acidity reminiscent of science fiction backdrops. She creates melancholic worlds that celebrate the power of the imagination to escape the everyday, whilst also exploring the unsettling and the uncanny, which often lurk behind such idyllic scenes."
