Anthony Goicolea, a Cuban-American artist who grew up in Atlanta and is now based in New York, has garnered international attention with his ambiguous yet strangely compelling landscapes, ranging from dream-like woodland environments to vast, unforgiving urban and industrial wastelands. The artist has created several series of digitally composited topographies, here populated by dogs and misplaced houses. Suggesting a world on the brink of obsolescence, this chilling image further cements the pervasive undercurrent of human alienation—from one another as well as the natural environment—that can be traced throughout the artist’s work.
