A Multi-Site Show Curated by Peter Homitzky
Landscape Revisited: Fact and Metaphor treats the landscape as experience rather than mere pictures of places. The artists approach their landscapes as conceptual works that are neither specifically literal nor descriptive.
The exhibition includes over sixty works by the following twenty artists: Hilario Alonso, Lauren Biancardi, Montserrat Daubon, Jose del Solar, Robin Feld, Yunny Han, E. Jan Kounitz, Richard Leon, Louise Lieber, JoAnne Lobotsky, Roberta Melzl, Michael Tyson Murphy, Gail Nicholson, Valerie Phillips, Marne Rizika, Eric Soll, Carlo Vialu, and Charles Wilcoxen. In addition, artist and filmmaker Leah M. Yananton and cinematographer Larry Engel will debut their new collaboration Landescapes in cWOW’s New Media Project Room.
“Landscape, whether real or imagined, is always site specific,” says curator and preeminent New Jersey landscape painter Peter Homitzky. “I looked for artists that have at least one foot planted in their own time, and who are aware of historical precedents and use them not to mimic, but as an aid in developing their personal point of view…. Point of view [is] the essential element in creating a personal visual language and process that defines an artist.”
Works in the exhibition will be shown in at Seton Hall University School of Law (One Newark Center) in addition to City without walls from January 8 – April 27.
