Sometimes, reality just isn’t enough. In Alex Andreev‘s series “Trailing Gardens,” the artist captures the whimsy of the fantasy and juxtaposes it with reality. He uses a brightly lit scene and morphs some aspect of the landscape, creating impossible situations. These scenes appear out of a fantasy world, or perhaps sometime in the far future. They contain otherworldly elements including hovering bodies that appear to be from a different planet.
Andreev mentioned how in his work, “I take it as activity aiming to fix certain states of comprehension I experienced in my childhood, in my dreams, etc.” He finds the immediacy of reality to one that can be changed just with the tip of his pen.
