Photography: Color, Manipulated, Gouache, Pencil, Wax on Canvas, Wood.
Before photography was invented, the depiction of landscapes were in the hands of artist who painted or made sketches. As every person has a subjective and own way to look at the world – and merely the artists, who dedicate themselves to this fact as a consequence of their profession much more to this than all others – any of these glances at the world, always contain traces of subjectivism and their own approach.
In fine arts as well as in literature, it is highly seductive to add or invent something in addition to the reality that really is there. We owe it to this beautiful human attribute, that important movements of art came into being as there are symbolism, impressionism, fantastic realism and so on.
Since the invention of photography, it took over these attributes from the paintings and with the options that came on top for manipulating pictures, it came into our daily life. Only the computer makes manipulation possible that are so perfect that they can not be revealed as to be manipulations – a perfect illusion.
The series “Magic landscapes“ does not claim to be a documentation of some landscape but first of all, is made for describing an emotional state of mind.
The picture is exposed in a profi laboratory for artists from canvas and mounted on 4 cm thick wooden frames. Image is protected with a protective lacquer.
