“This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.”
Work by Zander Olsen.
I love stuff like this… these are brilliant!
oh my god this is beautiful. so creative!!!
Ah! This makes me giddy. What a truly clever idea.
OMG these are SO John Pfahl-esque! I love.
this is INCREDIBLE. such union of nothingness, and physical presence. creates such a connection between earth and sky. wow. powerful!
What an interesting photography series! I love the concept, very unique. I’m definitely going to check out more work by him. :)
this is so different! thanks so much for sharing the goodness :)
these are beautiful photos. they somehow remind me of the artwork by Andy Goldsworthy. His art is so beautifully simple and completely inspired by nature. Here is a link to his work. I think that he would be a wonderful artist to feature in the FP blog!
That’s really enchanting. I love it! :)
gosh this is amazing.
This is beyond cool! Color-blocking nature!
Hi. I am apologizing because I do not want to sound like a jerk or an idiot, and I am not trying to be honest. But I don’t understand the purpose of the tree wrapping? I see how neatly the horizon bg and tree forefront is connected, but I still dont undertand why. To me it removes the nature from nature. I really want to understand becasue I am seriously intrigued. Thank you.
In Costa Rica they paint the bottom of trees white in order to keep ants and other bugs away from the trees and leaves.. they don’t create symmetrical lines like this but its still really strangely beautiful!
*** … and I am honestly, not trying to be. But …
the great thing about art and its relationship to the viewer, is that you don’t always have to “understand it” or “get it”. You are intrigued? That might just be enough….
I live in Hampshire! I must find them!!
