Matt Larson "Terroir"
8" x 8"
Terroir is a French word that means, in its most basic sense, “earth” or “soil.” Although no precise English equivalent exists for this quintessentially French term and concept, its roots are found in the sense of place induced by the underlying conditions of a given landscape.
The Terroir series reflects an exploration of this concept.
