Description: Have you ever heard of the term "Concrete Jungle"?
The name comes from the idea that buildings and other structures are trees, and that a city with a dense concentration of buildings is a city of trees.
This word was used as a metaphor for the “jungle”.
In this work, I combine the organic jungle of nature with the inorganic jungle impression of the city in my landscape paintings.
Some viewers of the painting may notice where it is by the title and the silhouette in the painting.
Or a view you saw on a trip, or a photo given to you by a family member or friend. One of the vast amount of data images that appear on the Internet.
It overlaps with images of familiar landscapes and landscapes in our memories.
It will be felt as a deja vu experience.
We can fantasize that it may be a natural landscape that existed there in the distant past.
This digitally painted work of art, a landscape painting, will become a new mental landscape that will stimulate our imagination and show us a mysterious side of our lives.
