ISOLATED, Feeling the need to get closer to nature in search of solitude. Getting deeply and morbidly in touch with the earth who shows its dark and ambiguous side. A landscape of hybridization between nature and mysticism. The deep waters of the ocean, the black rocks of Iceland and the disturbing winter landscapes of northern Europe are the setting for an introverted theme, deeply tied to travel and hermit culture, leading us to ask questions about our relationship with nature, the consequences of our past and future actions and to be interested in the microscopic aspects of it. It is a constant attempt of approaching and challenging a mutable nature, that scares us and attracts us at the same time.
Lunar landscapes, black & white and isolation. Enigmatic theme, the discovery of nature’s dark side and mysticism. Cocoon shapes, wool and thick layers. The idea of survival becomes the ground for a “protective” style, sometimes technical and visionary and sometimes rural.
The earth, the mountains, the rocks, lichens, and mosses become interesting subject matter to be investigated in depth. Inspiration taken from that which influences natures camouflage, surfaces and structure adaptation. The technological aspect is combined with Mother Nature and biological research becomes one of the top inspirational sources.
