Landscape 2007

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
In 2007, the National Galleries of Scotland commissioned Reisch to create a series of works to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scottish engineer, Thomas Telford. Reisch responded to Telford’s dramatic intervention in the Highland landscape with an equally spectacular transformation of his own. Using the latest modelling software, he produced views of nature artificially generated on the computer. His ‘Scottish’ landscapes are at once recognisable and fictitious, a vague semblance of both art and nature.
