Terra Nuova 4, 2020

Photographic Collage on board. 48x61cm.
“’Terra Nuova’ means new land. These works make reference to the flux in the landscape through ethnographic distribution of peoples around the globe due to war, famine, poverty or those looking for a new life in a faraway land; the story of my family, thousands of kilometres removed from the land of their ancestors, attempting to carve a new life in a new unknown country.
These works are made out of discarded scraps of photographic paper that were used for other landscape-based projects and repurposed into these new artworks, giving new life and function to these photographs and turned into a new reimagined landscape.” ~ Valentina Schulte, 2021
