Four Seasons by Philip Haas

The American artist and filmmaker Philip Haas has created a monumental work, Four Seasons. Haas was inspired by the 16th century Italian artist, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who painted imaginative portraits made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books.

“Whether I’m working in painting, sculpture, or film, what fascinates me is the idea of transformation. Through the Four Seasons, I am re-contextualizing the world of classical Renaissance portraiture using the transformative elements of scale, material, and dimensionality, thereby altering the viewer’s perspective.” Philip Haas
