Huxley-Parlour gallery are pleased to present an exhibition of new works made by American artist Lisa Sanditz.

One of the most celebrated landscape painters working in America today, Sanditz’s richly coloured works explore humanity’s impact on the natural world. Sanditz depicts the landscape as a reflection of contemporary cultural values. The eighteen works, made during lockdown in the United States in the spring of 2020, reimagine and rework the tradition of the Romantic landscape in the time of global health pandemics and Trump-era America.

Sanditz’ landscapes capture the intersection of the natural world and built environments, and its associated effect on food production, consumption, ecology, and the economy. The paintings render prosaic scenes or situations in brilliant and garish colours, capturing, as she describes it, “the ways the marketplace and the wilderness intersect, overlap, and inform each other.” Sanditz’ saturated palette, and her use of industrial materials, reference the impact of plastic and other synthetics on the environment. As the artist states: ‘these new allegorical paintings sparked from distant and recent personal memories, aim to stick joy, remorse, love and sorrow together in sumptuous and scummy surfaces. These paintings are bruised and loved. The colours are lovely, brazen, exhilarating and gross.’
