Subject matter
In his photographic works, Andersen shows the mark of human activity on landscape. This photograph shows plough lines, visible in the red land. Part of a larger series of aerial landscapes he created in the 1980s, this scene moves between legibility as a landscape and mere abstract patterning.

Physical Description
Print of an aerial photograph of orange/red fields and a strip of green trees cutting through the fields from the middle of the right side of the image toward the middle of the top.
