Landscapes are complex and can be examined on many levels. We may look at nature, history, artifacts, or aesthetics when attempting to read a space, but we must also consider how our landscapes are influenced by the people and things who inhabit them during a specific place and time.
The artists represented in this exhibition tackle identity formation, material culture and the digital landscape in a personal and direct way. Their activity in social, political and cultural constructs not only shape the living landscape but also depict how they self-describe and connect to the world. It's through their ability to share such intimacies that these artists affirm cultural values and provide us a greater understanding of our larger collective identity.
