    A poetic book of eloquent images ranging from the luscious to the tragic. Mortensen succeeds in transforming our view of this mundane setting into landscapes of color, texture, and meaning that stretch from ancient times to timelessness itself. References to prehistoric art flow comfortably and subtly into the universality of mortal experience and our place in both the internal and external cosmos. Yet, with the discerning eye of an old soul, the artist brings these monumental concerns to bear o A poetic book of eloquent images ranging from the luscious to the tragic. Mortensen succeeds in transforming our view of this mundane setting into landscapes of color, texture, and meaning that stretch from ancient times to timelessness itself. References to prehistoric art flow comfortably and subtly into the universality of mortal experience and our place in both the internal and external cosmos. Yet, with the discerning eye of an old soul, the artist brings these monumental concerns to bear on that which could otherwise be viewed as utterly banal- there is the understatement of a patient mind behind this lens, and the nonjudgmental hand of a teacher. Thus, Viggo Mortensen reveals himself to his audience by those very elements he draws out in us.

    I can not get enough of the thought provoking and almost surrealist and disturbing work. A must for true art lovers
