Christopher Reiger selects...

Amy Talluto, Thicket, 2007, oil on canvas

Josh Keyes, Creeping Hours #2, 2008, acrylic on panel

Josh Keyes and Amy Talluto use very different lenses, but explore the same territory. Keyes' pictures are emblems of our contemporary displacement, with particular regard to our evolving comprehension (or lack thereof) of the "natural" world. Talluto's sensitive drawings and paintings might be considered records of her "deep looking," and serve to animate the connection between self and landscape (and the melting of that distinction.) – Christopher Reiger
