Three ways To Draw The Landscape presents three approaches to engaging with the natural world. Through photography and video the Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson, Florida-based artist John Mann, and Vermont-based artist Jon Gitelson investigate the materiality of the landscape, the complexity of perceptual experience, and the relationship between our physical and mental experiences of place. Lamson’s video A Line Describing The Sun tracks the path of the sun during a one day performance in the Mojave Desert while Mann’s photographs of imagined landscapes speak of the desire to run away into the unknown. Gitelson’s The Last Snow In Brattleboro tracks the last snow to melt in his hometown in order to convince himself of Spring’s arrival.
