As in his earlier work, the artist continues to explore the figurative ground fixated between cities and their outskirts in photographs that quietly evoke progress as a cycle of repeated events: things made to be lost, kept for a while and soon to be forgotten. Like the photographers of the New Topographics, Ruwedel's work utilizes documentation to outline the reaches of human encroachment on the landscape. In the works on display, what serves to distance our trained understanding of these pictures are what the artist most readily shows: the places and the things that have long lived past its usefulness. Gaining access to these images, then, is to interpret the materials at their sites of discoveries, which forms the context - and, possibly, the meaning - of their particular situations.

The exhibition will feature works from some of Ruwedel's most recent series including NeighborsSplittingRecords, and Tree Houses.
