Composure explores the anatomy of an architectural structure from within a contained body of water. Through a moving lens, the glass and metal structure and fittings appear elastic as the constant ebb and flow of water disrupts a more conventional vantage point. Locher contrasts the definiteness of the world beyond the water with the constantly dissolving and resolving detail beneath the translucent surface; one is abstracted by the other. The artist’s altering of perspective makes for an absorbing exchange between the visual uncertainty represented by a liquid entity and the fixed and seemingly permanent assemblage above the water. By altering viewpoints, Locher draws attention to the interchangeable relationship between a fixed and altering or abstracted state.
