Geometric Reflections in Landscapes Create Abstract Realities

Victoria Siemer, aka Witchoria, is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer who produces new and unusual realities by altering expected perceptions of space. She blends geometric shapes into natural landscapes to produce the sensation of upside-down, backwards, and fragmented reflections.

Witchoria aligns pieces of mountains, trees, rivers, and oceans into symmetrical arrangements to form multiple layers within the single location. Through her manipulations, she blurs the line between reality and fiction and makes it difficult to fully distinguish the separate elements of each photograph.

The artist uses gray and moody scenes filled with overcast skies and monotone color palettes to elicit an emotional response from her viewers. The unpredictability of abstract elements blended into typical landscapes is a reminder that, no matter how much we try to manipulate our environment, we really have very little control over nature and the world around us.
