Landscape Painting Now

From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism

Edited by Todd Bradway. Text by Barry Schwabsky. Contributions by Susan A. Van Scoy, Robert R. Shane, Louise Sørensen.

From fantastical worlds to political topologies: a global survey of landscape painting in the 21st century
Although the fact may be surprising to some, landscape painting is positively thriving in the 21st century—indeed, the genre has arguably never felt as vital as it does today. The reasons why, if speculative, surely include our imminent environmental collapse and increasingly digitally mediated existence. Landscape Painting Now is the first book of its kind to take a global view of its subject, featuring more than eighty outstanding contemporary artists—both established and emerging—whose ages span seven decades and who hail from twenty-five different countries.
Through its thematic organization into six chapters—Realism and Beyond, Post-Pop Landscapes, New Romanticism, Constructed Realities, Abstracted Topographies, and Complicated Vistas—the book affords a generous window into the very best of contemporary landscape painting, from Cecily Brown’s sensual, fleshy landscapes to Peter Doig’s magic realist renderings of Trinidad, Maureen Gallace’s serene views of beach cottages and the foaming ocean, David Hockney’s radiant capturings of seasonal change in the English countryside, Julie Mehretu’s dynamically cartographic abstractions, Alexis Rockman’s mural-sized, postapocalyptic dioramas, and far beyond.
Landscape Painting Now features an extensive essay by Barry Schwabsky, art critic for The Nation. Schwabsky’s text weaves throughout the book, tracing the history of landscape painting from its origins in Eastern and Western art, through its transformation in the 20th century, to its present flourishing. Shorter texts by art historians Robert R. Shane, Louise Sørensen, and Susan A. Van Scoy introduce each artist, situating the importance of landscape within their practice and addressing key works. With over 400 color reproductions, including many details, this ambitious survey makes a compelling case for the continued relevance of landscape painting in our time.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Peter Malone

Above and beyond the volume's intelligence and visual sumptuousness, I believe Landscape Painting Now could play a significant role in our conversations about contemporary painting and its meaning.

Wall Street Journal

Peter Saenger

Half a century ago, artists focused more on soup cans and abstractions than on the scenes outside their studios. “Landscape Painting Now,” edited by Todd Bradway, shows how much things have changed.

Matthew Wong's porous reality in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Matthew Wong's porous reality in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Matthew Wong's "Untitled" (2016) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, launching tonight, Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM, at the Whitney Shop with a panel featuring Wong, Verne Dawson, Lois Dodd, Enrique Martínez Celaya, Alison Elizabeth Taylor and author and moderator Barry Schwabsky. "Matthew Wong… says he starts each painting without any idea of what he will paint," Schwabsky writes. "Explaining, 'I may just pick a few colors at hand and squeeze them onto the surface, blindly making marks, but at a certain point I will inexplicably get a very fleeting glimpse of what the image I may finally arrive at will be, sort of like a hallucination,' he sounds more like an Abstract Expressionist (de Kooning: 'Content is a glimpse') than a Pop artist, yet his densely woven webs of variegated painterly marks add up to places that look uncannily familiar… Wong's paintings are usually inhabited by a figure who might be interpreted as the artist's avatar—a personage trying to find a way through a world that might be one's own hallucination or someone else's video game. In the Post-Pop landscape, reality and what the outsider artist Henry Darger called 'the realms of the unreal' are inherently porous." continue to blog

Alison Elizabeth Taylor creates estrangement between images and their vehicle in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Alison Elizabeth Taylor creates estrangement between images and their vehicle in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Alison Elizabeth Taylor's "Only Castles Burning…," (2017) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, launching Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM at the Whitney Shop with a panel featuring Taylor, Verne Dawson, Lois Dodd, Enrique Martínez Celaya, Matthew Wong and author and moderator Barry Schwabsky. "Just as Constructivist art functioned by juxtaposing unmistakably distinct shapes, planes and materials—think, for instance, of an El Lissitzky Proun—the pictorial constructions of contemporary painters often juxtapose distinct pictorial 'rhetorics' or 'orders' (to use [Mark] Tansey's words) within a single work," Schwabsky writes. "Some go further: Alison Elizabeth Taylor uses the now rather recherché technique of marquetry, the ancient art of fitting together bits of differently shaded wood veneers to form a picture or pattern—combining it with paint and photographic imagery to create an estrangement between her images and their vehicle. A disconcerting sense of artifice is the first thing her works convey, and then the specific content of the imagery filters more gradually through that." continue to blog

The landscape itself inhabits Enrique Martínez Celaya as a ghost in 'Landscape Painting Now'

The landscape itself inhabits Enrique Martínez Celaya as a ghost in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Enrique Martínez Celaya's "The Empire" (2015) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, launching Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM at the Whitney Shop with a panel featuring Martínez Celaya, Verne Dawson, Lois Dodd, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Matthew Wong and author and moderator Barry Schwabsky. "Trained as a scientist, [Martínez Celaya] imbues his work with the philosophical and spiritual issues that fascinate him," Schwabsky writes, "with roots ranging from the Catholicism of his Cuban forebears through American Transcendentalism to the hermeneutics and ontology of Martin Heidegger. Martínez Celaya remarks that much of his work involves 'the feeling of having arrived too late;' this too-lateness is what gives his art its poignancy. It has a double meaning when the works involve landscape: first, there's the sense that, while the painting does not convey a narrative, there was an event or a story that took place, as it were, just before we arrived on the scene, something that left its echo but remains in itself elusive. More than that, it's as if we might be too late for the landscape as such, that we may have arrived just in time to bid it farewell. This sad reflection could be an inevitable part of our relation to the earth and to images of the earth in the twenty-first century. And yet, as long as someone remains as a witness, there is still something to see, something haunting: 'The landscape itself,' Martínez Celaya says, 'inhabits me as a ghost.'" continue to blog

Lois Dodd, dimension, simultaneity and time in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Lois Dodd, dimension, simultaneity and time in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Lois Dodd's "Water Sunset, Blair Pond" (2008) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, launching Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM at the Whitney Shop with a panel featuring Dodd, Verne Dawson, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Matthew Wong and author and moderator, Barry Schwabsky. "A complete agreement between the reality of the painting and the reality of what is depicted would be illusionism, not realism," Schwabsky writes. "A painting by Antonio López García, Rackstraw Downes or Lois Dodd may on the surface seem closer to a conventional view of the 'reality' of a vista than one by Soutine or Giacometti, and yet they too are constantly clarifying that the work of observational painting is a constant and never completely resolvable tension between two and three dimensions and between simultaneity and time." continue to blog

Verne Dawson brings veiled erudition to 'Landscape Painting Now'

Verne Dawson brings veiled erudition to 'Landscape Painting Now'

Verne Dawson's "Pagans" (2009–10) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, launching Wednesday, April 17, from 7–9 PM at the Whitney, where a panel discussion with Dawson, Lois Dodd, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Matthew Wong and author and moderator Barry Schwabsky will be followed by a signing. "The folksy style of Verne Dawson's paintings veils considerable esoteric erudition, a scholarly eye for the intellectual content of traditional culture," Schwabsky writes. "I keep playing around with numbers, math and astronomy, and how they show up in art and culture," Dawson is quoted. "Often I'll paint fairy tales, making sure all the attributes are right so the knowledge gets passed on. That's where this mathematical and astronomical information often finds itself, in fairy tales and folktales." continue to blog

Constructed reality in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Constructed reality in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Amy Bennett's "Nothing New under the Sun" (2016) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, our not-so-sleepy contemporary landscape painting survey, which released last week. Included in primary author Barry Schwabsky's chapter on Constructed Realities, Bennett's work sits beside paintings by Will Cotton, Cinta Vidal, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Merlin James, Gillian Carnegie, Alex Kanevsky, Adrian Ghenie, Lisa Yuskavage, Inka Essenhigh, Mark Tansey, Vincent Desiderio, Justin Mortimer and Jean-Pierre Roy. "Paintings that highlight their own constructedness never let you take too seriously the old picture-as-window idea," Schwabsky writes. "They keep reminding you that, whatever you think you see in them, you're never just seeing through them; you have to see how they make their propositions about reality in order to judge them, and that means you have to see that the proposition about reality is also a proposition about poiesis, which is simply the Greek word for "making." continue to blog

New Romantic Hernan Bas featured in 'Landscape Painting Now'

New Romantic Hernan Bas featured in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Hernan Bas's "A Landscape to Swallow You Whole" (2011) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, the D.A.P. new release launching in April at the Whitney Museum of American Art. "Hernan Bas's mixed-media works combine silkscreen, block printing and paint to make landscape a realm for the supernatural and sinister," we read in the book. "Growing up in Miami, Bas was exposed to local folklore about UFO, werewolf and Bigfoot sightings in the Florida wetlands, which inspired his interest in the occult. Bas, who is openly gay, is known for featuring young male waifs and dandies drawn from literary works by Oscar Wilde and J.K. Huysmans in small-scale, sexually fraught narratives; in his later works, the landscape assumes a larger, more spiritual role and themes have become more universal." continue to blog

"Untitled" (2016) by Etel Adnan is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, forthcoming from D.A.P. Edited by Todd Bradway with text by Barry Schwabsky, alongside contributions from Susan A. Van Scoy, Robert R. Shane and Louise Sørensen, this is the book on contemporary landscape painting, featuring work by more than 80 artists, from nonagenarians like Adnan to established figures such as David Hockney, Mamma Andersson and Peter Doig, to rising stars like Jordan Nassar and Shara Hughes. "For Adnan," Schwabsky writes, "her mountain may be a specific empirical place that she has contemplated over much of her life, but for viewers of the painting it is a kind of archetype of MOUNTAIN, an idea sensuously embodied—or as the artist's partner Simone Fattal once put it, 'the ever-revealing mystery, the ongoing manifestation.'" continue to blog
