Upcoming Fred Simon Gallery exhibit: “Landscape, Seascape, Some Kind of Escape” by Joe Addison

Landscape, Seascape, Some Kind of Escape

By Joe Addison

March 17 – May 10, 2023

“Landscape, Seascape, Some Kind of Escape, began accidentally during 2020. During quarantine, I spent a lot of time in my studio—while some days were hyper-productive, working on various photographic projects, other days I would stare out the window in complete dismay of what was happening in the world around me, glass of bourbon in hand.”

-Joe Addison

As a coping technique and time-filler, Joe Addison began to cut images into ruby lithographic film that replicated landscape images that he had been casually doodling for years—simplified representations of idealized landscapes. As the time passed while working on these negatives, Addison considered how any kind of landscape imagery is idealized in one way or another.

The show features a series of bold, graphic images derived from experimentations with graphic arts masking materials and Cyanotype, a process using chemicals and ultraviolet light to produce an image.
