Mediated Landscapes is a group show of painting drawing and collage that probes at a very contemporary set of ideas and philosophies about the landscape and about landscape painting. Curated by Mathew Tucker, the common thread in this show seems to be something like a shared philosophy among the artists despite a broad range of approaches, it is perhaps a return to the idea that we are imbedded and deeply enmeshed in the landscape even at a time when we might feel quite estranged from it, pointing at both our perceived separation from it and as the ultimate context and fabric within which everything exists.

Artists in the show use a diverse collection of devices and techniques to interrupt, distort, filter and self reference the image. All works wether explicitly depicting or alluding to the landscape (or the history of landscape painting) point back to the way in which they are not the thing, they point back to the gap between the image and the landscape in real life, the idea of what the landscape represents and how we perceive the space around us.
