Salzwedel's delicate and subtle landscapes reflect the friction between urban development and nature. Even his medium of choice is a statement of this clash, despite being a natural product (resin is the hydrocarbon secretion from plant), the actual hand layering process is considered very toxic and even dangerous to inhale or touch. With this painstaking process, Salzwedel is able to accomplish incredibly ethereal artworks with a sense of depth.
