Blandscapes: photography or drawings?

Spanish-born, London-based artist Oriol Angrill Jorda  creates mixed-media drawings paintings that mimic various photographic effects, inciting a conversation about mechanized versus handmade artistic production. Working with primarily graphite and watercolor, Angrill Jorda’s drawings take the form of double-exposure photographs, negatives or out-of-focus photos. These technically impressive works serve as records of an invented reality, subverting the documentary purpose of photography to stage surreal scenes.
In his most recent project, “Blendscapes“, Jordà creates hybrid images with human figures constructed from delicate landscapes. The effect is truly stunning. His images contain such unique color and texture combinations, as well as interesting displacement and reconstruction of traditional landscape imagery.
