Conceptual Landscape Paintings by Jonathan Zawada

read
Large-scale neon landscapes interpreted from digital data.

Surreal Landscapes by Geert Goiris

With his camera squared on alienated landscapes and out-of-place subjects, Belgian photog Geert Goiris uses long exposure times to challenge these assumptions. "I often use a long exposure time," he explains in his artist statement. "I......read more

Benjamin King: Abstracted Landscapes

read
Loosely-rendered paintings merge landscape and abstraction

With a few notable exceptions, landscape painting and abstraction operate on separate planes, and ne'er the twain shall meet.
