DESCRIPTION

More Scapes—an extended selection of Scapes (landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes)—further explores the varied visions of American landscapes. Artists expand the snapshot to create emotional as well as figurative impressions.

The earlier works of Charles Burchfield, Arthur Dove, and John Marin display an energy and novelty that is picked up decades later by Louisa Chase, Mollie Favour, and Michael Mazur. Joe Zucker’s pegboard work with its multiple vignettes pouring out of pegboard holes pulls the viewer into intimate scenes, as Michael Krueger's moonscape coaxes one into outer space. William Allan and Richard Artschwager introduce obscure narratives and mystery in their drawings, while Alexis Rockman portrays the chill of a glacier.
