Berg (After the Wreck of Hope By Caspar David Friedrich)

{painting} {image_alt} {painting_size} {painting_materials} {/painting}

The Sea of Ice from Freidrich’s famous painting the Wreck of Hope has been mirrored and reflected by its own skyline, leaving only thin air to stand on. The work is a homage to the original painting made to the exact same dimensions. 

The viewer is in a hopeless situation where there is no hope of escape or salvation and the surface of reality is its self folded back on its self in a hallucinatory way. A feeling of disorientation in the cold reality of a frozen northern wilderness is my intent with this painting.
