The Surrealist Nature and Cityscapes of Victoria Siemer

Looking at Brooklyn-based graphic designer Victoria Siemer’s surreal nature and city-based photo manipulations is a bit of an exercise of self-discovery. Like an immediate temperature-taking of your current mood. On the one hand, her topsy-turvy natural landscapes can feel like an escape; the foggy inverted forest feels like a peaceful escape from the linear, stressful everyday. On the other hand, the right-angled infinity ocean scene leaves you feeling more tsunami, less serene. Her cityscapes are magical and glittering – and would feel purely celebratory, if not for the lonely undercurrent that cuts through the bright light. Her work is beautiful, surely, but ambiguous in how it wants you to feel; like the best art, interpretation is in the eye of the viewer. [h/t joquz.com]
