The Muted aesthetic* series approaches the landscape as a testing ground, an environment for artistic experimentation and exploration of nature’s transformative qualities. Smoke and fog become random inscriptions that draw one’s eyes into the space. These mysterious, recurring elements from the romantic aesthetic underscore to what extent that which veils reality feeds the imagination.

In this work, the landscape is considered a vacant space inhabited by silent forms, a setting whose seeming neutrality serves as a basis for composition of subtraction. A device is used to suffuse the images with an elusive presence, a fleeting substance which remains on the fringes, on the verge of disappearing.
