Moira Ness

In this scene, what is the question and where is the answer? Or, put another way, where does nature end and art begin? Although at first glance, this image looks like any pastoral scene, this is in fact the artist’s creation. She subtly montages mirroring elements of a photograph, blending them seamlessly into the natural background to create a slightly surreal scene. It’s most visible in the trees along the horizon, but the rendering of the mirror image is so natural, it’s hard to tell. Conceptually, the artist created her “Cyclical” series exploring philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's belief that all events repeat in an endless cycle.
