No Title (Large Red Brick Drawing) 2003
  • Artist Rooms
This work comprises a fragment of found paper, printed to look like a wall of red bricks. The strategy of creating a drawing from found material suggests the influence of both Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque’s cubist still life collages in which they used paper printed to replicate wood-grain to represent wooden objects. The paper that Therrien uses is similar to the type found in children’s dollhouses, yet placed within a frame, the paper is transformed into an abstract composition.
