Fontaine uses various methods of representation to approach the vernacular landscape, architecture, and objects of New England which serve as symbols, icons, and metaphors in his pieces. He utilizes printmaking, painting, and drawing as tools for image-making through a considered act of introspection. In the process of making, he explores the space in-between the represent-ability of the everyday and the elusive depths of the mind. His work is unified by the exploration of relationships between the human condition, the existential, and the psychological. This collision of the psyche with the physical world he encounters in his everyday, resides in an uncanny space; both familiar and strange.
