Tim Eitel: Photorealism meets Surrealist Landscape

I dug further and I’m kinda obsessed. He used to do more referential stuff with obvious pointer clues to Mondrian etc. In recent years he has taken a more layered, minimalist turn, placing non-self-aware figures in stark, apocalyptic architectural settings.

He investigates the modern person’s bizarre relationship with nature, how we naively “tamed” its ferocity (i.e., golf courses, parks). You can download an amazing interview/article with him here by clicking on the “A Stage” catalogue. It shows the gamut of his work and painting processes.
