Present Tense is an exhibition that ignites critical conversations on contemporary landscape art. This series centers upon the large-scale landscape painting, 15 Canvas Study of the Grand Canyon,1998, by Pop painter, David Hockney, on loan from Art Bridges. This work will be compared and contrasted with landscape works by Florida artists ranging from highly accomplished and celebrated painters Dean Mitchell and Mark Messersmith, to mid-career artists Chris Rivera and Sam McCoy.
Part one of Present Tense pairs the monumental painting, 15 Canvas Study of the Grand Canyon by beloved Pop painter David Hockney, on loan from Art Bridges, with nationally renowned artist Dean Mitchell’s series, American West.
