Jeremiah Ariaz: Reconsidering Landscape

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on April 22, 2011 in Art
  • When Jeremiah Ariaz embarked on his photo project Reconsidering Landscapehe turned his camera on city murals of nature scenes, contrasting the imaginary landscapes with rocks, bushes, and trees in the foreground.   

    The images underscore an obvious irony, in that the murals depict the natural habitats the walls have previously displaced. They illustrate, Ariaz says, “our distance from, yet longing for, Arcadia, the imagined rural paradise.”
