The series PortLand combines characters and their surroundings in a novel manner. In the immediately visible layer, inner landscapes – moods and thoughts – are inseparably interwoven with external landscapes. On the one hand, those characters are infused with nature and environment; on the other hand, both factions are blended on multiple layers.
At the same time, the landscape refers to and shapes the characters in a very distinct way: by visualizing their unique
nature and personality without utilizing the traditional concepts of portrait painting. Thus, the boundaries between portrait and landscape painting are set aside.
