Altered Land: Works by Damian Stamer and Greg Lindquist
East Building, Level A, North Carolina Gallery; Free
Greg Lindquist and Damian Stamer, both North Carolina raised, create shimmering landscape paintings, simultaneously abstract and representative, that slide in and out of focus.
Their environments—from the natural to the manmade—are haunted by the past, appearing to be in the process of eroding, degrading, or fading into nothingness. Memory and loss, as well as the effects of time and economic and environmental ravages, are at play in these beautiful, melancholy landscapes.
Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions. Research for this exhibition was made possible by Ann and Jim Goodnight/The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fund for Curatorial and Conservation Research and Travel.
