Jake Berthot: "Janlori Loop"

Gone hysterical because of the weight and stillness of an impassable mountain of mist? Someone told me that there is no escape from history and memory. When the sun shines, it just makes claustrophobia clearer. Perhaps standing on your head would help. Or better yet, superimpose your head on the landscape, so your lower jaw sits at your feet. As high-functioning gray matter approaches infinity, it reaches toward the line. Escape to Bill Gates' perfect field. Is there awkwardness in nature, or is it merely cultural phenomenom?

Tom Nozkowski, Dushko Petrovich and Gregory Amenoff draw on the landscape as content for their paintings. Works by Jake Berthot, Melissa Brown and Clint Jukkala embed emotional presence within landscape conventions. Sharon Horvath's dreamy cosmic landscapes draw from peripheral vision. Will Lustenader loses himself in atmospheric deconstructive views. Works by Peter Ramon, Lucy Mink and Becky Yazdan explore and personalize the natural landscape.
