Lena Schmidt's Work Series »New York City«: Cityscape not Landscape

Urban shadow worlds and perspectives saturated with gold are being created in Lena Schmidt
s »New York City« series. Night versus day in timeless spaces. Cityscape not landscape. These alienated parallel universes devoid of organics, dissolving entirely into line, perspective, and material structure, have a dreamlike subtility and their very own optical tectonics. Levels shift, oscillate, quietly secret windows are being opened to enigmatic dimensions.
