> DESCRIPTION

Concurrently, the gallery will present an exhibition of photographs by Mark Swope entitled, Foliage. Like Bradley, Swope has focused on urban residential neighborhoods of Southern California, but with a specific interest in the relationship between the built environment and ornamental horticulture. His black and white images reflect an aesthetic and theoretical approach associated with the New Topographic movement in photography, and artists such as Joe Deal and Henry Wessel Jr. Some of the images document crisp, neat hedges that define yards and boundaries, or perfectly trimmed topiaries that suggest constant attention to detail. Others depict plant life wildly out of control, such as giant Hollywood Junipers whose tentacle-like branches resemble the tips of flames as they overpower tiny, modest bungalows. This exhibition, Swope's fifth at Craig Krull Gallery, follows previous photographic bodies of work on local subject matter including The Los Angeles River, The Cornfields, vintage rooftop signage, and the trees of Elysian Park.
