About Anne Gournay

About the artwork

Crossing Over is one of the five prints from the 'Ghost Town' series. The “Ghost Town” series explore the issues of isolation and loneliness one can feel in our modern society even when surrounded by people and communication. These images were produced from photographs the artist took in London, after a full night of snow fall in the deep of the winter. The weather had cleared in the morning, and the light emanating from the snow was amazing, and even sometimes stronger than the light coming from the sky, the sun being quite low at that time of year. She wanted to produce images, which would be timeless, and she wanted people to wonder if the images were real or created, photographs or paintings, or drawings. She was looking for a sort of surrealist impression, to communicate how incredible it was to be in the middle of such a large city as London, but feel alone. This was achieved by aquatinting a second plate, to create tones and add depth, to be used as a background to the photopolymer plate. The Ghost Town series has been widely exhibited.
