Geert Goiris

12 minutes silence

The photographs by Geert Goiris are isolated and alienated landscapes that point to the basic struggle between nature and human attempts to dominate it. The artist refers to a natural beauty on the brink of rotting, eroding, and melting, in order to posit landscape as a ruin — a continuous cyclical transformation between the historical and the evolving. These images, haunted by a strange presence, invite an innate faith in beauty which is increasingly artifactuous.
