Oooooh! These “fragmented landscapes” are the latest work from American artist Melissa Arendt. Skies, vistas, and creatures separated into their own quiet spaces. Here are Melissa’s words about this ongoing series:
“My intention with this work is to reduce a “landscape” into a minimalized and stylized form. For these pieces I use organic shapes that were sawed from wood panels and a pared-down color palette which mirrors the “fading” of these landscapes.”

Beautiful. I love them all so much, but that little quail might be my favorite {as my backyard is currently being invaded by them and their tiny little babies!}
