Impressionistic Views is a photographic series that explores the visual aesthetics of both the picturesque and the melancholy through the appreciation of nature. The use of the lone tree draws upon the core melancholy aesthetic of beautiful sadness. Through the use of layering multiple photographic representations and digital technologies builds an entirely new perspective of the lone tree. The method of production builds upon the traditional art conventions of enhancing the beautiful in the landscape while bringing back awareness to all elements in the landscape around us. The impressionist aesthetic brings an enhanced appreciation for the wider landscape through the absorbed experience in the viewing process of the sole focus of the lone tree.
