THE PROCESSION: PROJECT IN LACOSTE, FRANCE
There are few pieces in an artist's life that have the ability to impact and influence an entire community. There are even fewer times when the artist has the ability to impact an entire village in the Provencal Valley of the Luberon in southeastern France, and make them a part of the work itself. However, Rex Hausmann, a graduate painting student at the Savannah College of Art and Design bridged the gap between American student and villager. His piece, The Cathedrals of Lacoste, incorporates not only the present impact that the village of Lacoste has had on him, but is also representative of the lasting impression he hopes to have on the village.
