Wilderness and cultivation a 'Shore' thing at Artstation
Photographer Karen Crisp and painter Paul Pachter bring natural and urban landscapes together in their exhibition, The Shore, at the Artstation Gallery from 5 to 23 October 2004.
The artists explore the delicate balances of wilderness and cultivation that can be found alongside one another in landscapes.
Karen Crisp’s detailed photographs depict urban sites that hint at past events in her personal history. The suburban landscapes she portrays avoid spectacle and appear as quiet, seemingly ordinary locations. They are symbolic of her childhood and the loss of her brother.
Paul Pachter’s large-scale paintings capture the stillness of the natural landscape. The paintings are created through a combination of both deliberate and spontaneous mark making and refer to the impact humans have on the natural landscape.
The artists will discuss their work in an Artist’s Talk on Saturday 9 October at 1pm in the Artstation Gallery.
