When western artists directed attention to landscape as a subject in the early 19th century, they focused on realistically representing pristine views. More recently, artists have used landscape as a source for fanciful compositions, to share personal emotion and to convey social or political commentary. As well, they may choose to depict scenery that has been dramatically altered by human presence. Altered Landscapes features art works from the Akron Art Museum collection that offer a variety of approaches to their subjects. Artists represented include Yun-Fei Ji, Peter Dean, Mark Soppeland, Seymour Rosofsky, Randall Tiedman and Lilian Tyrrell.
This exhibition is organized by the Akron Art Museum and supported by the Ohio Arts Council.
