Known for her large scale landscape and panoramic photography, Ellen Kooi recently produced smaller sized photographs. In keeping with Kooi’s signature style, this body of work explores the compelling relationship between man and landscape, with figures seemingly caught in a need to dissolve into the landscape surrounding them. Her architectural approach to composition and perspective leave her outdoor scenes feeling empty and desolate, with viewers asked to arrive at their own meaning. Ellen Kooi's works contain ambiguity, wonder, vigor, loneliness and confrontation; shown through her characters and choreography, and lead by a dazzling décor. However, some of the works on display do not contain figures at all, a rarity for Kooi. Still with the same atmosphere, these framed photos are a little more loose in character.
