Impressionistic Views, 2022

Impressionistic Views is a photographic series that explores the visual aesthetics of both the Picturesque and melancholy through the appreciation of nature. The use of the lone tree draws upon the core melancholy aesthetic of beautiful sadness. The use of layering multiple photographic representations and digital technologies builds an entirely new perspective of the lone tree. The method of production builds upon the traditional art conventions of enhancing beauty in the landscape while bringing back awareness to all elements in the landscape around us. The impressionist aesthetic brings an appreciation for the wider landscape through the absorbed experience in the viewing process of the sole focus on the lone tree.
