Description: In the “Nocturne” series, light is projected through glass onto slowly moving scrims, casting shadows that expand and contract. The series name and the artist’s use of planes of muted color is a response to J.M. Whistler’s dusk-time paintings. The slow repetitive movements, shifting shadows and reflections in Lahaie’s sculptures are a contemporary restatement of the poetic atmosphere of Whistler’s dusk-time landscapes.
