The depiction of the natural world has fascinated artists since prehistoric times. Greek and Romans artists often depicted elaborate wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes in pleasure villas. In China’s late Tang dynasty, landscape painting had evolved into an independent genre that embodied a universal longing by the elite to commune with nature. However, the term “landscape” didn’t come into general use until the 1600s. Derived from the Dutch term landschap–meaning a region or tract of land–it gradually developed into a popular genre in seventeenth-century Holland for wealthy Calvinist patrons who desired paintings that described the beauty and spirituality of the world around them. By the second half of the 20th century, the concept of landscape was extended to incorporate concepts of urban architecture and the rise of industrial spaces. Likewise the rise of nature photography has been used to document issues of conservation, environmentalism, and concerns of land use.

This exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which we relate to the land we inhabit and explore the ways we relate to our own physical environment.

The exhibition opening will be held at the gallery’s West End location on Friday, March 9th, from 6:30-9:30.
