Hidden Nature 04 - 2 Sizes
The Hidden Nature series is inspired by the Romantic Movement, in particular Caspar David Friedrich’s paintings. Mak looked for the sublime within the modern society and sought to construct a moment where an individual can be at one with nature and be looking into their soul. The photographs move through history—subtly shifting in costumes and tones.
Mak's soft-focus images blur the boundary between painting and photography. The artist's inkjet prints have a UV laminate; they are mounted to an archival substrate and framed in white.
