ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
We are embedded in landscape. The spirit of place, or genius loci can be palpable in each landscape if we open ourselves to it. On the one hand this show is about finding and expressing the spirit that lives in landscape or a small place within it. The Hudson River School painters found the divine in nature and expressed the sublime in light, color and texture as it manifested in the landscape. Much has changed since then, techniques, our view of the world, our relationship to landscape. Abstraction has been added to the equation and much more diverse media are at our disposal.
Artists in this show have endeavored to deeply immerse themselves into the landscape and try to find the spirit within it and bring it to expression through light, texture and color.
