On the prairie, the view through the car windshield often reveals a never-ending roadway. Landscape painting in Canada has frequently been dominated by work less rooted in human geography; exploring the wilderness and generally downplaying or naturalizing the human reconstruction of the Canadian prairies. Shifting Grid highlights the aesthetic interplay of the grid roadway system with the organic contours of the land, as a way of considering themes around land use and the role we play in the constantly changing geography of the prairie landscape.
Opening Reception: April 30, 1:00-3:00pm. Everyone welcome.
