The linoleum cuts from „OVERVIEW“ show abstracted landscapes from an aerial view, whose inspiration can be traced back to the volcanic island Iceland. It is up to the viewer to categorize per colour and structure of the specific surfaces either landscapes in dry land, or water and submarine land and to allocate features to each manifestation by experience or knowledge gained from elsewhere. Martina Stock herself describes her interpretations of landscapes that are characterized by contrasts of warm and cold, as counterplays of centre and vastness, in which the viewer can find as much tension as also relaxation for the eye.
