The many ways ‘place’ can be defined and imagined is a significant theme in Dianne Bos’s art work. For this series of banner images, Bos used black and white film and a medium format camera to create overlapping sequential images of the Alberta landscape. These were later converted to vibrant colours using digital techniques.

The structural format of these works relates strongly to the Technopaegnia (concrete poetry) works of Banff poet Jon Whyte, where clusters of words form images related to Rocky Mountain landscapes. They are also inspired by Asian sumi-e brush painting, a technique that uses the fewest possible lines and tones to capture the soul of a place.
