Gerhard Mantz : Landscapes (Architecture Series)

::

“One can wander through these cubic structures and colored patterns to view them from different angles, much like moving through spaces and mazes in the urban environment. Purged of architectural embellishment and pared to essential 3-D form, these abstract spaces remain rich vessels for associative memories of streets and skylines we have known.” G Mantz

“The landscape subject is not so much about a geographical locale, but more a metaphor for a psychological state. It evokes feelings and moods so that the viewer enters an environment with immediate emotional responses. It appears realistic, even photographic, with inviting naturalistic details that lure and seduce. But, upon closer inspection the seemingly realistic details shift to reveal a strange virtual world associated more with an interior “reality” than an exterior one.” (Gerhard Mantz)
