The idealization of nature returns in this series of landscapes with a stereotypical aesthetic that perfectly meets the criteria of the digital world: one where dreams are standardized and beauty is the dominant element. These images that come to us from the internet form our current idea of nature. These days, the knowledge of what is natural is created through the observation of a monitor: you can enjoy the perfect landscape calmly sitting on your couch.
The paintings of the islands were created from collages of images of beaches and cliffs found on the internet, symbols of ideal vacation destinations. The mountain landscapes follow the same aesthetic, but their elaboration starts from photographs, which are then digitally elaborated and finally transformed into a painting. Throughout this process, all details are developed: the colors are brought back to their ideal balance and the landscape is modelled. The result is an aesthetic that is both monotonous and relaxing, where artificially constructed forms and contrasts are perceived as natural and absolutely “perfect”.
