Vistas: Landscapes Interpreted

ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries. From Mar 5th through Jun 2010.

altVistas: Landscapes Interpreted, on view at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries this month, offers a half-dozen widely varied artistic statements about one of art’s most common genres. Paintings of Wulf Barsch have been interpreted as “cosmic imagery” because his subject matter often combines geometrical, intellectual, and mystical elements with Egyptian and Islamic references.

Juxtaposing scenes and elements from different locations, Arless Day blends painting with environmental collages to create warmly inviting scenarios. Author and critic Donald Kuspit says that the paintings of Josephine Haden “stand on the threshold of entropy, a place where disorder is neither threatening nor disarming, but instead, a thing of beauty.” Kyle focuses his paintings, assemblage and installations on the threats to Florida’s environment.

The biomorphic, surrealist paintings of Richard Lytle are in such public collections as the Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of Art, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. John Torina’s American Impressionist works are painted outdoors during extended camping trips from the Florida Keys to New Zealand.
