“Landschaft mit Haus” is a series of paintings by Maria Zaikina. The subject: one house, simple and unchanged…however, the changing times and seasons offer altered views of this “landscape with house”…According to the artist herself: “The sense of motion is achieved through the static and repetitive composition: the square format, the horizon line in the middle of the image with a house in the center. It is a study of motion and stillness, transfusion and interaction. The beginning and the end of the journey are unmarked. There is no first or final image; the images follow each other in a random order. Only the process of watching the landscape is important. Through the motion of viewing repetitive images the sensation of complete peace and serenity appears: a momentary pause in front of a sublime and mysterious landscape – a stopped frame, not stop motion.”To view more of this beautiful series, go to Maria’s Flickr stream, here!
