Maier-Aichen’s defiant new works take aim at the characters of abstraction while expanding the photography of landscape. Their poetic nature and monumental status represent layers of media and processes, rendered in both the field and studio. Above all, the artist’s practice of image making is a subversive one, fully cognizant that only in the commingling of genres can an original view emerge. The images can originate from sources as varied as documentary or textbook photos to escapist landscape paintings. From there, the artist’s visual vocabulary and broad technical repertoire take over.
