William LeGoullon

(Un)Intended Targets

Traditionally the term desert has referenced a place that is deserted, without people, and unpopulated. However, now, more than ever, the idea of an empty landscape is far less accurate. Raised in the Phoenix area, William LeGoullon has developed a personal obsession with and appreciation for these transformative spaces. He believes that while we shape this land, nature continues to co-sculpt along side us and his works act as reflections on the inherent contemporary symbolism and continually challenged identities found within the southwest. Intermittently exploring how artifacts provide context to environment, he builds narratives concerned with the symmetry in nature and the human experience. By questioning concepts of permanence he is consistently attracted to the conscious and unconscious realities of what this desert stage provides.
