[...] The artist Lorenza Diaz creates landscapes on the border between figuration and abstraction and in them creates an imaginary, rugged and hostile world. The images are characterized by an emptiness, by the absence of any reference points that allow a temporal or geographical classification. In the paintings nothing points to an author any more. Thus one can imagine the pictures as prehistoric landscapes directly after the Big Bang and the emergence of the earth, but also as a dystopia, as a view into a distant future, in which all human life is extinguished and nature absorbs the ruins of civilization. Thus only a few of the visible structures in the pictures refer to a past - as testimony or trace of a passive decay - in which there is otherwise no further narrative content and thus no historicity, neither a past nor a future. [...]
