Aerial Landscapes

Joseph Bircher’s paintings, he calls Aerial Landscapes, are based on actual satellite images of mid-western farm land, some from the state of Kansas where he was born. The works are 2-dimensional geometric compositions illustrating the interface of the natural geography with man made features, including the vast grid of roads and the resulting divisions of property. Some of the images remind him of quilts and he is especially fascinated by the irrigated crop circles. He feels these paintings have a “semi abstract” quality and may seem familiar but may not be immediately recognizable to the viewer.
