The first thing you notice in the Engiadina Bassa are the colours. They are vibrant and create many abstract shapes and combinations. The area has 20 different mineral springs and the rocks around them are richly coloured in deep reds and oranges. The Inn river, the only Swiss river which drains in the Black Sea, has a beautiful rich turquoise colour and cuts through the valley’s vegetation. At the time we were there the hemlocks were turning yellow/orange. It seems that nature is an abstract impressionist in this Alpine landscape. Inspired by that I created this short video/painting piece studying the colours of the valley and their movement and play.
