What is a landscape? A scenic countryside? A long-standing tradition in art history? The distant backdrop of our lives and memories? In the exhibition [Land]scape, artists ask us to engage the notion of landscape on multiple levels. Some pull imagery directly from observed physical, natural, and built surroundings to construct narratives, comment on social, political, and environmental issues, or use landscape as poetic metaphor. Others explore the unseen spaces we navigate: the mind, dreams, fears, desires, the space between people, between the past and present, between here and there. Featuring a range of painting, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, and video works, the exhibition itself becomes a landscape revealing a strata of emerging art practices.
Participating artists include Jorge Bañales, Andrea Benge, Brigitte Caramanna, Danielle Dravenstadt, Kate Fitzpatrick, Emily Fussner, Kerrianne Hentges, Erica Hopkins, Strange Lens, Jennifer Lillis, Jayne Matricardi-Burke, Matt Nolan, Kevin Wallace, and Michael Walton.
[Land]scape is presented by Fenwick Gallery in partnership with ARTIFACT, a graduate student organization for MFA candidates in the GMU School of Art. ARTIFACT fosters connection, collaboration, and professional development within the MFA program and creates opportunities to share artists’ work with the Mason community and greater Washington DC area.
