Stimmungslandschaft (emotional landscape) is a contemporary translation of the aesthetic of the sublime. It is an expression of natural beauty and a tangible manifestation of a transcendental generating force. The pictures investigate the close relationship between body and context, inverting the compositional logic of landscape painting of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The human figure is not absorbed in the contemplation of the landscape but turns to the viewer as an integral part of the natural scenery. Light and backdrop push the subjects into the foreground but all elements are inextricably linked in the definition of the Stimmungslandschaft.
