Scenes in the Mist (series)
2014, Oil on canvas, 45x45cm 3pcs
The amount of signs and artificial lighting gradually decreases as we go from the city to a suburb or village, revealing a reduced trace of human activity. Gaze at the countryside scenery. Even though it is not purely natural, the few street lights are quite beautiful.
View distant villages from vast grasslands and try to look further afield -- the scene in front of us is already out of focus.
In the vast mist, the experience of traveling alone, combined with the scenery, gives people a strong yet slow sensation of uncertainty. It is as if we have disappeared in the moment, leaving only a vague glow and boundless time. Covered with layers of white mist, the lights of the landscape have all turned into spots like the reflection off the edges of leaves or distant lights. Facing away from the city and walking into the fog, when we are not insistent on the kind of scenery we see, then all the landscapes in front of us are chance encounters.
In the mist, all scenery is blurred.
