The Planned Landscapes of Ger Dekkers capture the repetitive geometry of man-made territories in a cinematic fashion. The work is characterised by landscape photographs carefully orchestrated in linear or grid sequences. In this approach, the artist points the camera to a fixed viewpoint and moves the direction of the view by regular increments.
What interests me most is the abstracting process which results from the way in which the frames are seen together. The Planned Landscapes unfold in patterns of fields lined with familiar textures. The eye of the viewer moves and creates assimilations between the different frames.
