« Impossible Landscapes » is a series of jewels that I started in November 2012 and continue to work on. The series is based on the landscapes that surround me with references to the painters and poets who treated the topic of landscape. »

Montserrat Lacomba - the 'Impossible Landscapes' serie

« It is impossible to understand art separated from feelings. It is a precise manifestation of reflections to be expressed and shared with others.  Art is uneasiness.
Painter Joaquim Mir remained captivated by the landscape of Torrent de Pareis on the island of Majorca and over time he searched for places from which one could see landscapes never previously painted.
Poet Jacint Verdaguer, of whom Joan Maragall wrote “no one knows the aspect of our land more than he,” in his notebooks of excursions to the Pyrenees had annotated descriptions of the landscape, orientative sketches, linguistic observations, writings and annotations that he would later use in the “Canigó” and others of his literary works.
The “Impossible Landscapes” series is born mainly from the admiration I feel for the painters and artists who have extensively treated the topic of landscape throughout the years, since it stopped being merely the background of the picture but instead became the focus of the work.  The same holds true for my recognition of the writers who make us imagine and transport us to unknown lands that we each come to know and interpret in our own way.
When we are surrounded by the landscape, our view gets lost into the infinite where there are no limits.  When we frame a fragment of landscape through a window or with a camera, however, that fragment assumes another sense and we make it ours.  Loving the land and surrounding landscape has led me to seek new landscapes that, once captured, become impossible. I move them to small wearable pieces, like windows, that invite the viewer to imagine and fantasize.«
