GP Presents and Gerald Peters Gallery are pleased to announce Fault Lines: Shifting Perspectives on Landscape in American Art curated by Anna Ortt and Alexandra Polemis Vigil. Christy GastShane McAdamsJason MiddlebrookKristine Moran, and Nick van Woert explore landscape alongside earlier artists like Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Hart Benton, Arthur Dove and Max Weber.

Today, the notion of landscape is more expansive than it was for the pictorial realists of its history, and more contingent on subjective meaning. Similar to their predecessors, today’s landscape artists use their subject as a vehicle for interpreting reality, taking it apart and putting it back together again in a way that questions its significance and authenticity. The five contemporary artists included in Fault Lines thus connect their work to this history of landscape while also providing new contexts in which to view it and new processes and new media with which to create it. Click here for FULL PRESS RELEASE
