This new project is created around two beautiful places that fascinate me to no end: the Scottish Highlands and the Portuguese Alentejo, however can be many other places in world making a difference and similarity between north and south.
By omitting the sky, I was able to create a stronger focus on their shapes and colours and bringing to light their differences and similarities. These two regions, despite being almost completely opposite, share more in common that one might initially think. Their pure, natural beauty and dramatic intensity inspire a peaceful and hopeful feeling.
Initially the idea was creating paintings of Scotland but then I realized the beautiful landscapes of Lake District, the moors of Yorkshire and Lancashire make as well a perfect match for these Series. Maybe the South will be represented by others landscapes scenes of different countries as well.
