‘Spiritual Landscapes’ connects the audience directly with the feral aspects of human nature, instinct, passion and curiosity of places that we interact with physically and spiritually. As much an explorer as a photographer, Maria’s fascination and obsession with life cycles and events, across cultures, dominates the subject matter of her pieces and drives her to visit often remote and unusual locations.
For this residency, Maria focused on Icelandic nature; shot in various locations across summer and winter, offering the viewer a window onto the limitless and eternal spaces. The results are bewitching insights and stories that present us with a captivating sense of discovery and reflection that takes the viewer on a journey across these vast terrains.
“To be able to capture life and fix a moment of reality as it is lived is magic. I suppose my curiosity and passion for new places and experiences is what takes me out to explore. I am a traveller. To get out there and be a part of our world, makes me feel alive. It is never a solitary journey when you are col- laborating with the sun.”
Icelandic born artist Maria graduated with a MFA from Glasgow School of Art in 2007. Since then Maria has exhibited internationally working from London, Paris, Greenland, Granada and Reykjavik.
