Invisible Landscapes is an exhibition of works on paper, prints, and artist books, by Alice Austin and Andrea Krupp exploring invisible landscapes.
In May of 2016, Austin visited The Lightning Field, a land art work by Walter De Maria, located in New Mexico. This art experience involves staying on site for 24 hours and walking in the vast landscape, the light changing on the 400 stainless steel poles. De Maria wrote about his art “The invisible is real.” He requested that no photos be taken of his installation and so Austin documented the place with drawings, filling a large sketch book during her stay. She created a series of dry point prints, from one large copper plate, using different color inks and papers, to show the changing light, and the presence of the invisible.
Krupp writes in her essay for the exhibition: “I find it fascinating, miraculous, really, that I can see the Arctic town of Longyearbyen, in Svalbard, Norway, in real time, through a webcam... 24/7 if I choose to. A digital transmission beams into my eye, connecting me to a distant place...” In her artist’s book “Transmission from Svalbard,” and several works on paper and Yupo, Krupp depicts another kind of invisible landscape, a digital transmission from a place in a remote region of our planet that she has never actually seen.
