The juveniles, who unite themselves in Simon Pasiekas pictorial landscapes in diverse natural sceneries, seem to secede for a moment from the civilising constraints structuring their every-day lives. They gather to practice their small rituals and trust – so it seems – therewith to find answers to their questions.  References to the men-nature-relationship in romanticism seem apparent; but in Simon Pasieka´s work nature remains, in contrast to the romantic conjuration of nature, just a background in a game, whose development is conducted by the juvenile protagonists themselves. The objects they use such as glass and mirrors do not only remain metaphorical accessories, but function as tools in that game of fragmentation and recreation of the childish self; a game that – in the course of perception – also adopts unexpected menacing traits.
