Matieskova’s work is a way of escaping the reality of everyday anxieties through capturing the mood of the forest and its hidden treasures. This is achieved by taking long forest walks with her camera, where she gets lost on her journey to capture the extraordinary.
Matieskova investigates themes such as abandonment and escapism. Her current project, Hidden, represents escaping reality when times are difficult and walking around the forest helps to lessen the stress of everyday life.
Matieskova captures the uncanny atmosphere of environments like a forest. Her large scale digital prints mirror this sense of mystery achieved through long exposures and the eerie feeling through the colours.
