About The Artwork

From the series 'Texture / Contexture' In the same way that all living creatures are different, our home planet Earth has many characteristic qualities which make it individual and unique. These elements of the natural world we evolved alongside for millennia, such as stone, wood and moss coexist with concrete, ceramic and metal; the results of humanity’s eventual technological advancement. These many and often juxtaposed elements continuously surround us to form our past, present and future; They are the interwoven tapestry that makes our environment the diverse, complicated and tactile wonder that it is. As an ever growing percentage of humanity enjoys international travel, collectively venturing further at an ever increasing frequency, in the minds of many, the Earth’s ‘vastness’ is shrinking. The growing social expectation for the traveller to continually venture further and more often, to ‘collect’ a list of destinations and experiences for their own sake, has taken focus away from appreciating the details of what is there to be observed. Texture / Contexture uses this idea at its core. This new series draws together a 3-channel video installation and a collection of 36 inexorably detailed, site-specific landscapes that have been carefully sourced from various geographical locations. Gathering imagery from Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Japan, Continental Europe, the Nordic countries and into the Arctic Circle, Texture / Contexture seeks to bring a slowness to the viewer’s gaze and encourage an appreciation for the often overlooked, beautiful detail in our world. It is while closely examining and defining the subject out of context that we see the blurring between natural and man-made, the questioning of macro or micro, and our influence of preservation or destruction. The series places natural objects alongside constructed elements from the past; showing countless years of proof of humanity’s influence in forming the world of our present day, be it for the prosperity of the planet, or for our own species’ consumptive advancement. This elimination of contextual focus makes it possible for the viewer to appreciate the details for their own merits whilst simultaneously viewing the entire collection. As art historian and cultural theorist Aby Warburg often said, ‘God is in the detail’. This is a 1st edition C-Type photographic print on Endura Metallic paper. This artwork is framed; face mounted on perspex with box aluminium hook mount (hanging instructions provided). Please Note: *This work is a limited edition of 10. All editions are signed, named and editioned on the back of the work. A label is provided that is signed and dated for authenticity.

Valentina Schulte is a Sydney based artist focusing on photography, video and sculptural experiments. Her continuing interest in the arts has led her through the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in 2009. Schulte’s work has evolved a focus around the urban and natural landscapes we inhabit and how these places affect our experiences of the world. This idea has evolved through research centred around travel and the flaneur in order to try and understand why we seek new horizons and experiences to enrich our lives. While the central theme in these works is humanity within the landscape, newest works take these ideas and explore ideas of circadian rhythms, sacred geometry and geometric patterns, beauty in small details, terraforming, positive and negative space and finally the bending of nature to our will. Schulte’s work has been exhibited in galleries, institutions and artist run spaces in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra as well as internationally in solo and group shows in the USA, Norway, United Kingdom and Spain. Most recently, Schulte was a finalist in the Ravenswood Women's Art Prize (emerging) and was awarded overall winner of the 2017 CLIP Award for contemporary landscape photography with her work 'Our Silent Guardians' and Fishers Ghost Photography Prize in 2019.
