Eric LoPresti: No Blue Skies

  • Location:
    Kunsthalle Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main St., DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York, 11201, US

Eric LoPresti’s landscapes are investigations into the “apocalyptic sublime.” Whether rendering nuclear test sites, aerial views of the scarred desert of eastern Washington State where he grew up, or undisclosed explosions across a region’s expanse, LoPresti’s environments are ones of man-made disruption. In his new paintings, LoPresti continues his use of the color field gradient to represent another landscape in transition. Featuring 15-foot canvas of an ominous dust cloud, No Blue Skies presents the terrifying, exhilarating moment when the shock of circumstance blinds us to both past and future.
