Newzones is excited to announce “LANDSCAPE X 7”, a group exhibit, this January 16 – 30.
“LANDSCAPE X 7” features artworks from seven artists that explore the landscape genre with a contemporary eye and process. Utilizing various media including oil painting and photography, each artist tests the boundaries of landscape as we perceive it, presenting a distinctive outlook on the field in both technique and concept.
Together, “Landscape X 7” offers a stimulating dialogue around the conventional understanding of landscape. Themes of identity, conservation and the tension between natural and constructed realities are addressed. Some document the natural magnificence of our surroundings, others manipulate or re-imagine it entirely. The feelings invoked range from calm and somber to vibrantly playful.
Artists included: Dianne Bos (Calgary), Chaki (Toronto), John Folsom (Atlanta), Peter Hoffer (Berlin), Stuart McCall (Vancouver), Don Pollack (Illinois), and Pat Service (Vancouver).
