About the Exhibition

January 28–March 19

State Gallery

Shane McAdams often uses traditional imagery along with mundane industrial materials to explore the boundaries between the “natural” and the “artificial,” the “concrete” and the “abstract,” as those ideas relate to the conventional notion of landscape painting. He sets up unlikely collisions and connections between material, process, and subject matter to create illusionistic worlds in which we might gain a better understanding of how we register a truly authentic experience.
