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.
Featured artists are Etel Adnan, Francis Alÿs, Hurvin Anderson, Mamma Andersson, Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Lucas Arruda, Ayman Baalbaki, Jules de Balincourt, Ali Banisadr, Hernan Bas, John Beerman, Amy Bennett, Cecily Brown, Gillian Carnegie, Noa Charuvi, Nigel Cooke, Will Cotton, Cynthia Daignault, Verne Dawson, Vincent Desiderio, Lois Dodd, Peter Doig, Rackstraw Downes, Tim Eitel, Andreas Eriksson, Inka Essenhigh, Richard Estes, Genieve Figgis, Jane Freilicher, Barnaby Furnas, Maureen Gallace, Tim Gardner, Franz Gertsch, Adrian Ghenie, April Gornik, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Pat de Groot, Daniel Heidkamp, Barkley L.

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

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.

Midwest Book Review

"Landscape Painting Now" affords a generous window into the very best of contemporary landscape painting.

New Criterion

Andrew L. Shea

With more than four hundred color reproductions, the book is beautifully illustrated and a fitting testament to the artists contained within.

Something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Shara Hughes’ “Tipsy” (2016) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, the summertime staff favorite from D.A.P. Publishing. Hughes’ worlds “are in perpetual flux,” Robert R. Shane writes, “as colorful forms morph into one another, an effect that echoes her improvisational and playful process and is reinforced by her collage-like combination of materials and techniques, including oil paint, dye, airbrushing and enamels.… The childlike quality of the mark-making underscores the sense of youthful imagination and spontaneity that Hughes achieves; yet, as in so much of her work, there is also the sense of something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes.” continue to blog

Pat de Groot captures nothing or everything in summertime staff favorite, 'Landscape Painting Now'

Pat de Groot's "spring blue" (2001) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, one of our summer-time staff favorites. De Groot's paintings "can seem almost abstract," Barry Schwabsky writes, "but as she has said, 'They are done from what is happening: the color, the wave action, the wind, the sky and the horizon,' and for that reason, 'I have to move with the changes until I get something that looks pretty much all right.' In some of these paintings, we could be looking at nothing, or everything—but nothing in between." continue to blog

Exterior, interior and virtual all at once in 'Landscape Painting Now' painter Corrine Wasmuht

Berlin-based Corrine Wasmuht’s “Llanganuco Falls” (2008) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, the D.A.P. blockbuster edited by Todd Bradway. (Read an interview with Bradway here.) Barry Schwabsky writes, “In the century or more since the inception of abstract painting, there has been a constant tension, a push and pull between the desire to hold on to the sources of abstract pictorial space in embodied experiences of vision, as for instance in landscape, and the equally compelling desire to see the new spatial possibilities proposed by abstraction as fundamentally distinct from what those sources made possible.” He describes Wasmuht’s massive panoramas as “woven together from quantities of source imagery so that the engulfing space seems equal parts video game, street scene and shopping mall—exterior, interior and virtual all at once.” continue to blog

Hyperreality enjoined by feeling in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Hyperreality enjoined by feeling in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Makiko Kudo’s “The Kingdom” (2017) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now: From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, our best-selling 2019 survey. “The wide-eyed girls who populate Makiko Kudo’s landscapes are the witnesses more than protagonists of stories that might take place within them,” Barry Schwabsky writes; “we see the verdant scene as though from their point of view: a double consciousness of a familiar place where, she says, ‘the scenery is shining in my eyes… burned into my brain.’ It is a hyperreality enjoined by feeling rather than by minute attention to details; what ties it to Pop is not the banality of the everyday but quite the opposite, a childlike wonder at even the most ordinary things (which, for instance, Warhol projected onto the Campbell’s soup his mother gave him for lunch every day as a kid).” continue to blog

We ❤️ Lisa Sanditz's 'painterly moves' in Mother's Day Staff Favorite 'Landscape Painting Now'

We ❤️ Lisa Sanditz's 'painterly moves' in Mother's Day Staff Favorite 'Landscape Painting Now'

"For over fifteen years, Lisa Sanditz's pulsating, Kool Aid-colored landscapes have captured the intersection between the natural world and built environments and its effect on food production, consumption, ecology and the economy," Susan A. Van Scoy writes in Mother's Day staff favorite, Landscape Painting Now. "Sanditz travels to diverse places—single-industry cities in China, junk food factories in Arizona, industrial sites in Miami—and collects artifacts, smells, tastes and stories, making sketches and taking photographs, then returns to her studio to replicate the human action on the land, using what she calls her 'painterly moves.'" Sanditz came up with the idea for Fumigation Tents (2016), pictured here, while driving around Los Angeles, where termite extermination tents are common. "The whimsical landscape is dotted with a number of these tents," Van Scoy writes, "but color seeping out of their lines as well as aerosol spray-paint marks at the top of the painting hint at their deadly purpose." continue to blog

Inspired by Ditch Plains Beach in Montauk, Long Island, Daniel Heidkamp's "Memory Dune" (2017) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, our pick for mothers, painters and contemporary art lovers everywhere. "Heidkamp delights in capturing the timelessness of contemporary scenes—his paintings are more than landscapes in that they record the rich history of a place with Fauvist-like, saturated colors marinating in their site-specificity," Susan A. Van Scoy writes, noting that he is attracted to locations that behave like "an 'art vortex' for their strong scenery, light, character and historical nature." continue to blog

In 'Landscape Painting Now,' painting as experience

In 'Landscape Painting Now,' painting as experience

Will Cotton's "Forest" (2003) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, a featured title at our bookstore at Frieze New York 2019. "A picture—above all a painted picture—can be an experience," Barry Schwabsky writes, "in one way for the person who makes it and in other ways for the people who come into contact with it. The gesture of offering one kind of experience as a way of conveying an idea about a different one is a species of metaphor, and that seems to be the spirit in which many of today's painters of landscape present their works. A landscape painting is not necessarily a representation of a landscape, but rather something that, in being constructed out of pieces of representation, or possibly just echoes of former representations, kindles an experience of its own—one that, as those fragments of resemblance suggest, is somehow like an experience of nature." continue to blog

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'

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'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

"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'

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

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
