Landscape East And West

The Dictionary of Art has a major entry of nearly one hundred pages under the rubric of “landscape painting” that details the history and variations of landscape painting in the West and references descriptions of landscape as either a motif or a category in discrete entries dedicated to the world beyond the West, for example, China. This is not to suggest that landscape painting in the West is not a significant or an enormous entry topic in its own right but rather to recognize that the universality of landscape as a visual recording of human attitudes and perceptions of the natural world has been abbreviated. Therefore the tradition of defining and describing landscape requires reformulation of it as a pandemic idea. With that in mind, this essay will discuss origins and modern examples of landscape in Europe and the United States as well as in Japan and China. Whether rendered as ideal or real, harmonious or discordant, bucolic or refined, the landscape communicates solace, spiritual grandeur, and space for solitude.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines landscape as both a verb and a noun, signifying not simply its multiple references in vernacular and specialized parlance or its active and passive modes but more importantly the varying perceptions of landscape as an artistic, cultural, and religious entity. Among the definitions of landscape as a noun, the OED proffers first “A picture representing natural inland scenery, as distinguished from a sea picture, a portrait, etc.” Further definitions include “The background of scenery in a portrait or figure-painting,” “A distant prospect: a vista,” and significantly, “The object of one’s gaze.” While as a transitive verb, landscape proposes “to represent as a landscape; to picture, depict.” This verbal form further connotes “to lay out (a garden, etc.)” as a landscape. Western art history classifies landscape as both iconography and theme; that is, as a series of signs and symbols that form the visual vocabulary that is encoded with specific meanings, such as the metaphor of the “errand into the wilderness,” or the Garden of Eden. As a topic, landscape is either the subject matter of a painting or a series of prominent elements in a painting that coordinate the diversity of public understanding of the idea of “landscape.” The early nineteenth-century transformation of landscape into an acceptable category of painting by the academy equal to history and portraiture signaled a shift in Western cultural and religious values.

I contacted Landscape East & West to get an estimate for putting in an irrigation system at my house. Based on my research, and in reading several reviews, Landscape East & West seemed to be a logical choice to contact in getting an estimate for this work. What I discovered was a complete lack of responsiveness and professionalism on their part. The gentleman I spoke with couldn't even take time to talk with me unless I was put on a waiting list for 4-6 weeks. Only then could I get an estimate for the work I wanted done. It was explained that I would have to wait an additional 4-6 weeks before any work would commence. It took a week's worth of phone calls to acquire this information and timeline due to this company's poor responsiveness with returning my phone calls. I now consider this experience to be very telling of a company that I would likely have problems with if I ever did business with them. I consider my limited interaction with Landscape East & West to be a “bullet dodged.”

Landscapes. We are fortunate in Oregon and Southern Washington to live in one of the most epic landscapes on earth. Seriously. And we are fortunate to live in a climate where we can put a spectrum of plants in the ground and they will thrive. Our climate is similar to the great garden climates of England, known for their world renown gardens! Landscape East & West is a solid landscape contractor I used for hardscapes. That's pavers, low wall blocks and block steps over leveled excavation, by hand, by them, with tons of gravel and sand underneath. I'm fit, but hauling tons is not my most fav workout! If you need two bushes planted, maybe Landscapes E&W is not your first choice. You can do it yourself easily! But if you need hardscapes: fences, decks, plantings, pavers – diamond sawn, or large fieldstones with those plants, I recommend these folks. I'm a design geek, so I provided a lot of research and design drawings they worked with easily. If you need their designs and advice, sure they could mesh with that. I worked with estimator and supervisor Bjorn. It was a challenging project. On a slope. Well executed, on schedule, on budget , and perfectly cleaned up on completion. They also had a brilliant deck crew that did a great job. The contractor world is populated with free spirits. That means they don't show up, don't honor their bids, disappear, take the money and run, take random breaks for “hunting season”, and don't clean up. I've plenty of personal experience with each and every of those examples. Landscape East and West is none of that. They are solid, reasonably priced, and strongly recommended!
