Postcards with motifs from my occult/nature inspired Forest Land series. Available in different formats. The postcards have round edges and the sizes comply with common post standards.
The series addresses the condition of the forests and the interaction between man and the sylvan realm. The extraction of resin from living trees is a central motif. In the past the bark of the trees was cut for collecting the resin. The cuts in the tree bark are called “Lachten” in German. They form a symmetrical pattern on the tree stems. Several such trees create a bizarre and surreal looking scenery, in which the wounded trees occur almost extra-terrestrial.
Besides this, the forest is a place that we visit to find peace and clarity. A walk in the woods is proven to strengthen the immune system. I enjoy searching for resin and other treasures among the trees and gather strength when spending time in the woods. The photos in this series are meant to capture the fascination and the alien as well as familiar feeling that I connect with the forest.
The postcards include different forest motifs, such as the iconic fly agaric, an alien tree scape, tree roots, fern and a bending birch tree.
Please leave a note with your order, if you wish for the postcard to be signed on the back (no extra cost).
