Located, featuring work by Nate Burbeck and Aaron Dysart, dissects social undercurrents and the immutable permanence of natural landscapes through both artists’ respective media. Burbeck’s sweeping panoramic landscape paintings leverage a heighten sense of light and shadow in suburban terrains, creating a surreal psychological space hinting at a foreboding darkness under the surface. Dysart’s sculptural practice gives nature’s towering formations a glamorous makeover; imagine a cliff’s rocky outcrop coated in a luminous guitar finish, while simultaneously creating a longing for the real thing.
