Peter Sutherland: Forests and Fires
Forests and Fires is Michigan-born, New York-based artist Peter Sutherland’s first solo museum exhibition, featuring new site-specific work for CAM. Sutherland uses a variety of landscape imagery, from mountain ranges to deciduous forests, to evoke incongruous sensations of awe, danger, and the sublime. Incorporating techniques and materials intrinsic to both photography and painting, his work expands the potential of both media. The artist’s process involves digitally printing photographs onto perforated vinyl, attaching the images onto sterling board, and sealing them with acrylic gel medium. By allowing the particle board’s pattern and commercial branding to emerge through the vinyl, Sutherland’s “paintings” appear pixelated, with a hazy atmospheric quality.
