MARCH 10 – APRIL 21, 2018 Helikon Gallery is pleased to present ‘Other Worlds,’ a collection of contemporary landscapes culled from the imaginations of artists working in drawing, painting, and photography. The tradition of landscape painting is a staple of the history of art, from visualizations of heaven and hell in religious art of Western Europe to documentation and romanticization of untamed wilderness, outer space, and archaeological ruins beyond the eyes of the public.
The artists featured in ‘Other Worlds’ were chosen for their myriad interpretations of landscapes– some playful, some stark and disorienting, some evoking earthly forms through abstract compositions– and none lying perfectly within the bounds of “traditional” landscapes. In rekindling the exploratory spirit of past landscape painters to create newly imagined landscapes, these ‘Other Worlds’ seeks to bring viewers into worlds of the unknown.
