the lost caspar david

In The lost Caspar David.

In the series of works, she teases out the area of tension between nature and human freedom. The artist uses the iconic work of Caspar David Friedrich The Arctic Ocean as a pictorial quotation. In doing so, she is interested in the confrontation of aesthetics between the beautiful and the sublime. Particularly in the current global discourse on man-made climate change, these images make us aware of man’s smallness in the face of elemental forces and, at the same time, their perceived impactfulness.
