Nisus Gallery is pleased to present Flatlands, the gallery’s second annual group painting exhibition. Flatlands is about duality and the complexity of perception within the medium as both an analytical and emotional pursuit. With the internet at our finger tips, painting both competes with and utilizes the recent proliferation of digital visual culture. In the life of a painting the past and future are always present; the past evidenced in the works’ making and in the layers collected by the artists, while the future lays in the context and the audiences’ interaction. There is a melancholy about this past and a cheerful anxiety about the future. Flatlands focuses on paintings that embrace these many forms of duality and, ultimately, celebrate painting.

The exhibition is co-curated by Brad Nelson and Kendra Larson.
