Once again, Natalie Sudman has successfully expressed the same sense of vastness and isolation fused with observational annotation that was so much a part of her earlier map series. In this case however, the documentation of lost civilizations has been replaced by the documentation of the process of loss of our own civilization.

Matthew Picton’s work is best understood as a progression and development of a focused idea using a broad range of innovative and unusual media. His work has an intellectual point of departure with a near obsessive application resulting in spectacular objective representations of the built environment.

This series of work by Joshua Stringer is a meditation on transience. “Mono no aware” is a Japanese term that refers to the subtle beauty of transience. The cloud forms, leaves, and delicate gestures in this work relate to one another, in a way, like visual haiku; resisting narrative to lead us to a state of silence and reflection where we may find something of the eternal in the temporal.
