The extremes in the work of Gerco de Ruijter move between the geometric patterns of the cultural landscape and the sponge-like forms of the spreading of nature. By means of tumbled perspective and careful framing, an alienation of the familiar landscape image comes into existence. His photographs invite the viewer to switch between figurative and abstraction: Where on the one hand you had just recognised sheep or a ripple in a pool of water, the next moment the image turns into a game of colour surfaces and texture.
