Rowena Dring, Pia Fries, et al.
Landscape Confection brings together the work of 13 artists who expand the boundaries of traditional landscape painting. They embrace the decorative and blur distinctions between art and craft, using materials and techniques—including silicone, wax, collage, and embroidery—that range far beyond paint on canvas. Artists in the exhibition are Rowena Dring, Pia Fries, Jason Gubbiotti, Jim Hodges, David Korty, Kori Newkirk, Katie Pratt, Michael Raedecker, Neal Rock, Lisa Sanditz, Ranjani Shettar, Amy Sillman, and Janaina Tschäpe.
This extensively illustrated catalogue features an overview essay, "The Loneliness of the Decorative," by Wexner Center Chief Curator Helen Molesworth, plus entries on each of the artists by associate curator Claudine Isé. Landscape Confection was on view at the Wexner Center Galleries at the Belmont Building in downtown Columbus January 29-May 1, 2005. Published by the Wexner Center and distributed by D.A.P.
