BEAUTY: Art--Sven Kroner
Much like Alex Roulette, Sven Kroner paints idyllic landscapes tainted by civilization but in Kroner's vision, we are looking back at the few little remnants of industrialized culture from the post-apocalyptic future. Highways are abandoned and now only used by wildlife, a lone office chair sits incongruously in a decimated snowy landscape or on a beach, and broken cars and washing machines sit in a swamp while the survivors of humanity live in tents on the shore. Another kind of dystopia...after the fall...
