🌸 🐇 ☁️ #unattainablelandscapes
is part of the series Unattainable Landscapes
by Niki Selken. Unattainable Landscapes is a series of dreamscapes created by layering photos of far-off places with impossible weather patterns, waving rainbows, and even shimmering hair. The work was created during confinement the artist experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic as an alternative way to experience the impossible landscapes she could not visit while staying at home.
