As a concept of geographical analysis, the landscape is very well grounded in several studies both within the perspective of cultural geography and in other aspects. However, in general, most studies, both in Brazil and internationally, focus on either their history, or on the application according to the chosen line of thought. Understanding the landscape as being pure and in its philosophical roots proves to be a challenge, but an insight that art can corroborate in its understanding. Starting the journey through the supposedly non-existent landscape of Cubism, passing through surrealism, and entering the (non)realities of non-sense, from fantasies to the landscapes that connect us, but dare not to see, this study tries to understand the landscape as a landscape itself and it facets in contemporary society. Thus, divided into 5 chapters each with 3 subchapters, the thesis reveals the landscape involved beyond the human senses, but in an always internal-external construction, or even the other way around, promoted by the relationship of time and space. In this relationship, it is understood that it is necessary to go beyond representation, to understand the actions arranged in the landscape, in the experiences. In the landscape, imaginary and reality is not opposed, unlike the dream and concrete, which are the duality that can be lived in the landscape, even in an incomplete way, to understand that the landscape overcomes the barriers of human ideas, to experiencing the purest longings of humanity. Thus, while memory is more related to reality than the imaginary, the activity of this is alive mainly when it is arranged through art. In this sense, the landscape is an essential category for understanding the environment and, especially of the tensions experienced, either in a material aspect or in imaginary-mental composition.
