When does land become landscape? What transforms a physical environment into something of significance? And what methods do artists employ to organize and convey the inexplicable experience?
This exhibition brings together the work of 4 artists who reconsider the language of traditional landscape through explorations of vastness, incompleteness, systems, and memory. Together they convey an experience of landscape, rather than a literal representation, asking how much of what is unseen and ineffable informs our connection to our surroundings.
