Since the Apollo mission to the moon in the 1960s, Michael Winters has pondered how he could combine both the earthbound landscape and the elements of time and space in one work. This was the challenge he set himself.
The idea to create “sculptural landscapes” gave Winters the means to combine these elements. His works are strongly three dimensional and the landscape is very clearly defined, however, it is cut open and punctured, revealing layers underneath. According to Winters, these layers are to be read as cosmic space penetrating the landscape and enveloping it.
Technically, the works start out as drawings on graph paper, from which he plans their construction and assembly using matt board and gouache.
