What is Landscape?
The question is impossibly broad, but maybe thinking about a few other questions would help narrow the possible responses.
What’s your point of view? Are you a romantic? Are you a realist? Are you primarily concerned with aesthetics? Is your work a call to action or is it a call to appreciation or is it both?
Maybe looking at the work of a few contemporary artists would help:
Matthew Luther is a Milwaukee based artist who will be showing work at the Graymatter Gallery (opening Friday, September 19, 5:00 – 9:00)
