Adam Satushek: Disconnect

21 Jul

Currently on display at Gallery4Culture is an exhibition of new photographs by Seattle artist
Adam Satushek.

These large scale photographs arise from the artist wandering the landscape and discovering oddities. The found arrangement of houses and trees, two major elements of the modern domestic landscape, is isolated and preserved.

Houses shelter us from the elements; they are vessels that enable us to live comfortably in the landscape and represent our occupation of the world. Trees live among us and exist in various forms and permutations: as thriving organisms, as raw materials, and in images. In these various forms, trees manifest nature in the landscape. Houses and trees intermingle across the landscape, and exemplify the knitting of humans with nature. As we look closer, these houses and trees become transitory, illusory, and ultimately, our ideas of them become disconnected from their functions.
