Florien Allemeersch, Nature is a mirror
master beeldende kunsten - vrije kunsten
The work frames a moment in time and space in an everlasting changing world. Where humans’ attitude towards nature is ambiguous: we want to change everything and at the same time we want to keep unspoilt nature as it is.
We have lost touch with this natural world – of which we are a part – but a way to understand this world is to become aware of it, observe what is happening.
The influence humans have on the natural environment becomes visible in this ‘untouched’ nature. At the same time it is about the visual language of nature and painting. The images I use to paint are from my own archive, which I have assembled through several walks through natural areas. Intuitively I choose an image as a starting point for the painting.
