Peter Schardin - Landscape Allegory, Photographs & prints
Opening Saturday 12 June until 1 August 2010
My thoughts; it is about the connection one has
with the landscape,earth, ground, water etc. I dare say, the landscape has been a little misinterpreted at times and turned into a holy grail of religion,
mythology and environmental issues etc.
My interpretation is quite simple, it is about our
connection to earth, hence the absence of the
human form in my work. To me, the placement
of figures in a work may shift the importance
towards the figure, because the figure will
become a reference point and therefore detract
or maybe dominate the work.
