In the 2000s, Comte began to create images of pure landscape, focusing on the awe inspiring beauty of Engadin, an Alpine Valley in his home country of Switzerland. He would commit the same intensive vision onto a landscape as with his figurative work, making portraits of the very world itself. Focusing on the effects of weather and the ephemerality of nature, Comte’s landscapes are a soaring vision of the power and delicacy of the natural world. While intensely indebted to the great landscape painters of the 19th century, Comte extends the meaning of the genre, to create a unique and individual response. A committed environmentalist, these works are perhaps Comte at his most personal.
