about this exhibition
The artist’s personal research and affinity with nature during the course of his life led him to the realisation of a landscape as a living entity, with emotional capacity and self-determination.
In his work, the ultimate goal is comparable to that of the character of Victor Frankenstein from Mary Shelly’s romantic novel who passionately attempted to infuse life into his creature. The landscape appears almost dissected revealing its inner side, with simple elements such as stones and earth looking like arteries and joints, the branches and pathways as veins and tendons. Trees become organs and flowers the heart and soul, the shaded distances are like skin pigmentation which, like a vessel, carries the whole, intertwining man and nature as one.
