DESCRIPTION

In Matthew Daub’s newest body of work, The Maiden Creek Series, his subject is a twenty-two mile stretch along Maiden Creek, a rural tributary of Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill River. Depicting specific sites along the way, and identified only by their  latitude and longitude coordinates that serve as the title of each image, Daub’s finely rendered, near-monochromatic watercolor panoramas are experienced not as landscape but of place: place as a private world with its own interior life; place as somewhere to linger and explore deeply or where we are encouraged, indeed commanded, to move on, the place itself escorting us along the road.
