Landscapes which appear to be naturalistic prove on closer inspection to be almost naive and uncanny.The drawings are more concerned with issues of perception than with the depiction of an idea of landscape as such. They question what we actually see and how we are to make sense of it. Trees and foliage are transformed into figures, branches are choreographed into messages and creatures hide under piles of branches. What will happen, or has something already happened?
