Approaches to representing place are as varied as the artists that create them—involving detailed observations, emotional responses, abstract elements, and imaginings. Reactions to the environment-at-large are mediated through personal experiences as well as through social and cultural frameworks.
Using a wide variety of media—including linen, wax, glass, paper, porcelain, paint, and metals—each artist represented in Field of Vision creates a rich and varied composition inspired by landscape, light and space. These works are substantial without being directly representational. Conceptually, they depend upon and explore the relationship between human beings and the natural world.
