Sutherland Falls & Lake Quill Limited Edition Print
I’ve always been fascinated and inspired by New Zealand and especially Sutherland Falls and Lake Quill. The landscape charmed me with diversity and harmony: the lake, the mountains and the woods made such a simple yet astonishingly appealing sight that I couldn’t help but try to recreate it in art.
Like New Zealand, nature is composed of various elements accompanying each other, I built up this artwork of simple geometrical shapes: circles, triangles, lozenges. There are no ideal shapes in nature but I like to imagine what would world look like if they were. Rough angular mountain slopes and snow caps surround soft-shaped lake and woods, encircling them, while the water still finds its way down with the waterfall. Thus stability and motion are represented. The power and beauty of the landscape stream down outside the borders of the picture into the interior. With highly detailed surfaces I tried to show the vibrancy of nature where each inch is filled with life: stones, woods, water.
While working on this picture I sometimes felt this slight sensation, uncanny desire to dive deep into this lake, rise to the surface and be lost in blue, green and grey. I strived to give the same sensation to a person contemplating it. I believe New Zealand to be the place on Earth where it’s much more easy to feel united with nature, be whole. With my work, I aspire to share and spread this feeling.
