The “painted” landscape attempts to realize and objectify nature by placing it before us as an acquired body. At the same time, it alludes to an infinitely larger presence and life that exists outside the constraints of the frame, one that we cannot see but imagine.
Presenting itself as a slice of picturesque scenery or surroundings of one’s daily life, it is also a symbolic form of an idealized world created by the artist’s view that is itself formed between consciousness, dynamic interaction with others and the natural world.
The representation of this idealized world is mediated by the viewer’s perspective and aesthetic experience. This subjectively driven interaction invariably creating its own layers to the depicted landscape.
Lænd.skeɪp presents three artists perspectives on landscape: absence, memory, gesture, abstraction, transformation, reframing, erosion, decay and regeneration.
