Ssaliva: Landscapes

‘Landscapes’ is a first attempt to highlight Ssaliva’s visual work. Through a selection of 100 images – digital paintings based on original photographs or screenshots – the book takes us on a scenic journey into the artist’s mind. Recalling a wide variety of references from the fields of photography, painting, landscape architecture and even Internet art, Ssaliva’s paintings bear witness to a wistful sensitivity to urban and rural exploration. Ssaliva has made his region a real playground. Walking through the “indeterminate” or empty spaces of Liège and its surroundings, the artist showed his empathy for the interstices and other abandoned places charged with history. This is what he tried to transcribe in the modification of his digital paintings: A veil wrapping his landscapes in mysteries. With this book, Ssaliva sets a coherent backdrop to his musical production, further completing the puzzle of an instinctive body of work inscribed in the pure romantic tradition.
