Anastasia Samoylova, Paradise, 2015, archival pigment print, 24x36 inches, edition of 5 

By utilizing tools and strategies related to digital media and commercial photography, Anastasia Samoylova’s work interrogates notions of environmentalism, consumerism and the picturesque. Her work participates in the landscape photography tradition while scrutinizing the consumable products it generates, and explores the ways in which photography is used to illustrate concepts of the Beautiful and the Natural in contemporary visual culture.

“The Landscape Sublime project reflects the idea that the subjects of contemporary popular photography can be traced back to the genres in European painting in the seventeenth century. My photographs show a variety of nature-themed pictures assembled in a still life. For the Landscape Sublime series I gather such images from the web, group them by the types of subject they depict, i.e. storms or cascades, print them out, sculpt into temporary installations, and re-photograph. In my compositions I give screen-based environments a sense of materiality.”
