Lars Hertervig's Old Pine Trees

Julio Anaya CabandingSeptember 2019


Stavanger, Norway

Julio Anaya Cabanding carries out pictorial interventions by creating detailed replicas of well-known classical paintings in unusual places. The artist's technique of choice, trompe-l'œil, uses realistic imagery to create optical illusions, suggesting to the viewer that these well-known paintings have suddenly appeared in inhospitable and decaying places. The resulting work tells a story of symbolically liberating the paintings from the museum's sacralized rooms to place them in other spaces, creating new meanings in that encounter. For this work, Cabanding chose to work from Norwegian painter Lars Hertervig's 1865 work "Old Pine Trees".
