Fault Lines: Shifting Perspectives on Landscape in American Art
February 10 – March 18, 2016 Reception: Wednesday February 10th, 6-8 pm
Location: Gerald Peters Gallery 24 East 78th Street, New York, NY 10075
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.
