MARRIED TO THE LANDSCAPE: A DUO EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY AARON WUERKER AND JENNY WUERKER
May 26, 2017 - August 20, 2017
We’ve been painting the Wyoming landscape together for nearly 25 years. For each of us, the need to define an Iconic American landscape has repeatedly surfaced. For Jenny, that means capturing the feeling of stark expanse in large paintings with big skies racing back to meet distant ridges and light stretching to the horizon. In Aaron’s work, the shapes of industrial objects mimic natural formations in the landscape creating silent interactions. Ultimately, a realist perspective serves to celebrate the beauty of common places. In this recent body of paintings, we hope to share a vision of the Western landscape that one might identify the next time they see a massive cloud formation or road signs lined up with the horizon.
