lost in the trees
art photography – by © peter gartmann + sabina roth
Peter Gartmann + Sabina Roth have created black and white, monochrome tree works – lost in the trees. Full of lightness, the trees seem like changing abstractions in connection of heaven and earth. The translucent trees are brought to life by the light – in continuous change and transformation they strive ever onward. In the treetops rustles the world – we lose ourselves in it – quietly feeling the movement – the wide, sweeping branches in the pursuit of the sky – and the growth in ourselves.
Lost in the trees – lost in the forest – lost in nature – lost on our earth – lost in this time – lost in our universe – lost in their lights – lost in infinite expanse – lost in ourselves – light – life – unfold – aspire.
The trees in a flickering light – the flying looking treetops brought into the picture. Full of secrets in black and white – in translucent cover – like floating branches in light spaces.
The tree series „lost in the trees“ is the result of a long-term visual exploration from 2006 to 2021 by Peter Gartmann + Sabina Roth on the theme of trees, forests and nature – based on individual image series around the mystery and essence of trees.
„The Oak – Sovereign among the Trees“, 2007
„Cherry Tree – Tree of Love – Tree of Happiness“, 2011
„Binding Waldpreis 2012 – Forstbetriebsgemeinschaft am Blauen“, 2012
„The Blue Forest in the Leimen Valley – boundless beauty“, 2014
„The Light of Trees – Tree Sculptures“, 2018.
The pictures „lost in the trees“ are inspired by the exhibition tree sculptures „wrapped trees 1998“ by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in Berower Park around the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen near Basel.
I think the tree is an element of regeneration which in itself is a concept of time.
Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.
The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
