Elnaz Mansouri’s series Winter Abstracts consists of three aerial images of the Canadian landscape during wintertime. The series depicts landscape scenes that are reminiscent of minimalistic illustrations and child-like drawings. With the use of a drone, these images capture the artist's suburban neighbourhood. Mansouri describes her practice saying “Nature is a mirror to my identity, and I continuously build upon my definition of “home” through observing and reflecting in the landscape”. Mansouri’s work has been published on platforms such as National Geographic and Canadian Geographic.
