Tinka Pittoors

Metamapping (mixed technique on canvas), 2011, 80 × 60 cm
Tinka Pittoors (BE, 1977) lives and works in Antwerp. She creates 'landscape models', constructed from a variety of different materials. Typical of this landscape is the huge scale confusion caused by the combination of several elements. The miniature landscapes are photographed and printed on a very large size, suggesting a crack in reality. They become landscapes through which you can travel anywhere but eventually never arrive at the destination. It refers to the nineteenth century romantic ideal landscape, which we still see in landscapes, but as an illusion.
