Archaic and seemingly raw landscapes, magically glowing hills, rugged cliffs, graphic structures of water, desert, clouds and ice. For four years, Tom Jacobi former art director of the German magazine Stern travelled through seven continents and created a focused view on different places shaped by natural influences over millennia with his large format landscapes. He presents his work in a trilogy entitled Awakening, which consists of the series Grey Matter(s) (2014–2015), Into the Light (2015–2017) and The Light Within (2018). At first gloomy and mysterious, then cool and clear, finally contemplative and inviting – each of the three groups of works emits a particular atmosphere, which Jacobi deliberately produces and consistently pursues using only natural light. A beautiful homage to nature and our planet.
