Says Rene: Blossom shows images of blossom trees enclosed by misty darkness. Night has the ability to provoke a sense of isolation. I want to display a world that seems to only consist of one single blossom tree with her delicate flowers. Some branches are extracted from sight, while others are revealed, affecting the shape and appearance of the blossom tree. In this project, I refer to the work of the 19th-century Romantic landscape painters. Their personal concept of nature, creating a new one, appeals to me. Whereas the Romantic artists preferred wide landscapes I let the blossom tree with her exquisite details represent the greatness of the untameable nature.
