An entity is something that exists in itself, actually or hypothetically. It need not be of material existence. In particular, abstractions are usually regarded as entities. In general, there is also no presumption that an entity is animate. Each image has its visual form but beyond this form there is actual or hypothetical existence of knowledge, thoughts, imaginations and feelings generated when confronting the image.
My role is creating the image deliberately avoiding expression of my personal feelings and determined imaginations and expression of my thoughts. If it is a piece of reality as far as photographic image might be considered, it appears not so real since it does not meet our expectation, assumption and also possibly, conceals image manipulation.
Incidental Landscapes invokes illusory worlds that disrupt the boundaries between the real form of the land and fragments of someone's creative imagination, a document and a fiction. Art is intertwining the medium of painting and photography. The images transcend the usual depiction of the land leaving reality unreadable. Instead they bring forward dreams, hidden symbolism, sense of spirituality so often and strongly associated with indigenous life rituals and beliefs as well as their art.
Incidental Landscapes reflects on the essence of the earth in parallel with the aboriginal way, making an emphatic statement about the basic truth of something. The outward appearance similar to aboriginal “dot painting” in some of the images is surprising and can be the significant element effecting someone’s perception, the way in which image is regarded, understood or interpreted.
