DENVER CO., Abend Gallery is proud to present our latest landscape exhibition, a show so large it must be presented in two parts. With an opening reception on June 10th, and a second opening on June 23rd, this exhibition will feature an impressive line-up of the best landscape painters with styles ranging from crisp realism to abstract expressionism.
Landscape painting spans decades, miles, a multitude of styles, moods, and perspectives which makes it an incredibly dynamic and ever-evolving genre. Each artist working within the realm creates work out the settings that speak to them, interpreting them through paint and brush. This exhibition serves to showcase a variety of work from some of the best working artists today, creating atmospheres which present the viewers with a uniquely unparalleled experience. One may find themselves amidst familiar worlds of recognizable environments while simultaneously feeling as though they’ve stepped into strange and wonderful dreams.
While it would be worthwhile and formidable to speak about all the artists included in the exhibition, highlighting just a few of the artists leaves room for the viewer to create their own sense of the works and the show as a whole. For the exhibition Michelle Condrat brings back her signature, pixelated-style landscape pieces that present the viewer with a fresh, contemporary perspective in large scale. Artist Adam Hall’s moody, hyper-realistic work will be on view as well, showcasing his incredible ability to document the environment around him with arresting accuracy. Denver based artist Matthew Saba will be showing one of his dream-like landscape works, which encapsulate elements of both the real world and other places unknown. The work of Jason Kowalski hinges on the photographic, highlighting every detail of the scene on view with crystal clarity.
Whatever the case may be, this exhibition is a testament to the notion that the genre of landscape painting transcends through time, and captures the attention of anyone willing to stop and stay a while. While the genre continues to evolve, as viewers we are treated to a glimpse of the world through the artists’ eye, which is and continues to be an interesting and eye-opening experience.
