Mixing the urban and the utopian: The otherworldly art of Tristram Lansdowne

If his work looks like your dusty Yes album jackets or the cover art of those Arthur C. Clarkes you toss aside in the used-book bin, it’s for good reason; like them, artist Tristram Lansdowne is deeply concerned about the future.

In his paintings, citrine glass biodomes are nestled among mountain peaks, volcanoes belch lavender plumes, and tidy concrete platforms negotiate cliff faces in as surefooted a way as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. His island landscapes are sanctuary to whole phyla of the plant kingdom – ferns, palms and mosses of every description. But there isn’t a person in sight. Txt Via
