A cycle or a serie of processed landscapes done while on a trip to Nida, Lithuania in summer 2006.
Idea of homogenization or blendedness came as a side effect on contemplation about processed food. Specifically, thinking about the baby food. It is a first taste of the "real world" outside mother's milk for most of new born humans, born in average civilized circumstances. As such it is a strange introduction to the world which is palatetively preceived as a whole one, not as container of parts. Individual parts such as potatoes or carrots or brocolli lose their individual identity and form a blended, averaged taste experience. Individual parts lose their shape, identity and their stories. Blended heroes (vegetables in case of baby food) narrate oneness, a "one", but what one is it? A brocotatoe? One pointing at no-one? Marinistic landscapes have a deep romantic tradition, depicted in a state of emotional arousal, tension or conflict and fully loaded with a narative charge. Taking a full optical information possesed by such a landscape and thoroughly blending it, we clean up perception from representations and can enjoy a clear and clean aesthetic transaction. Sublime shall not be lost!
