Air cube + a global perspective

June 19 - August 28, 2009, Reception: August 1, 6-8pm

The Richard Levy Gallery's inaugural LAND/ART show, Air Cube+, showcases the art of six contemporary environmental artists including: Lisa K. Blatt, San Francisco, Ben Delevoye, Paris, Nicole Dextras, Vancouver, Diagram, Stockholm, Katie Holten, New York and Christine Weir, Los Angeles.

Air Cube+ focuses on the transient relationship between nature and man. Works include: Lisa K. Blatt's video investigation of the sprawling, uninhabited landscape of White Sands, Katie Holten’s Old News (Ghost Forrest) of charred dead trees made of wire, newspaper and ink, Christine Weir’s graphite drawings that illuminate bodies of water in New Mexico as seen from Google Earth, Ben Delevoye’s Air Cube that showcases the element of air itself, Nicole Dextras’ photographs of fabric encased in ice, Diagram’s miniature model landscape, Hurry, that depicts human impact on the environment.

According to the Richard Levy Gallery, Air Cube + exemplifies a new wave of artists who are finding conceptual ways to address the fleeting landscape around us. The gallery is also presenting a solo exhibition of landscapes by Matthew McConville. Painted in the Hudson River School style, McConville’s Earthworks refer to contemporary land art.
