OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 28th, 7-9pm
Impressions of the American Landscape by Jennifer Basile will include large-scale relief exclusive prints and ballpoint pen drawings, including new work created by the artist as a fellowship winner at the Kala Art Institute, California over the summer of 2018. Often driven by personal research throughout the United States National and State parks, Basile’s practice offers a reflective escape into the natural environment and inspires viewers to preserve their surrounding landscapes in the face of overdevelopment and climate change. Printed by hand, Basile’s immersive and detailed works envelop the viewer and often focus on a specific attribute of her chosen landscape. Blurring the line between representation and abstraction, her works can be characterized by loose, gestural, and emotive marks of astonishing depth and perspective.
