The oeuvre of Karel Mus is characterised by metaphorical, evocative images that, remarkably, leave plenty of room for interpretation. Each work is a conversation without rules, without obligations, without restrictions. It is an almost blank canvas on which the viewer can project his ideas, thoughts and impressions – without restraint. And yes, at first glance there is often little to see. But that is precisely what triggers a host of emotions.
Landscapes are often disrupted by human elements. But what happens when those human elements are ‘erased’? By consciously moving away from classic landscape photography, new images emerge that no longer have a link to reality. A whole new world emerges where there is space for dreams and meaning, where the line between photography and painting is blurred, and where one is allowed to wonder.
