David Axelbank

David Axelbank Work from the Lozenge Series. “The idea of “Landscape” is dependent on the human viewpoint – it is a cultural and aesthetic construct versus the natural world. It could be argued that this moulding or shaping of space has as much to do with the framework for traditional landscape, as it has to […]
