Bucolic landscapes painted on the surfaces of cut tree trunks by Alison Moritsugu

Fascinating bucolic landscapes inspired by the idyllic 18th and 19th century aesthetic in pictures of great painters, such as Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Edwin Church, made on the surfaces of cut tree trunks by Hawaiian artist Alison Moritsugu.

“By viewing the painting’s surface, the cross-section of a tree, any sense of nostalgia or celebration of nature is countered by the evidence of its destruction. (…) My work acknowledges our more complex and precarious relationship with the environment.” – Alison Moritsugu via Bored Panda.
