“Aspects in Landscape”, curated by Stacy Greene at Galerie Protégé, juxtaposes the work of six artists whose interpretations of landscape range in sensibilities – from sensory to surreal and media. It runs the gamut from two dimensional artworks like drawing, painting, and photography, to sculptural installations.
In her drawing process, Murphy Chang utilizes melting ice to create etchings in resist. This process results in biomorphic monochromatic forms which resemble a microscopic image of a unicellular organism, resonating vitality and potential of growth.
Gregory Curry’s surreal paintings depict fantastic swirling flora and fauna – resonating breakage, disruption, and imbalance.
In her alluring photographic arrangements of fictional botanical forms, Lisa DiLillo invents potential futuristic plant evolution , or dystopian mutations.

Peggy Bates explores landscape as a sensory stimulus, aiming to create a repose for the senses in her highly saturated abstract paintings.
In her scroll painting “Karst”, Melanie Kozol takes us through China’s Karst Mountains – capturing a vital rhythm of nature through paint and ink. Her incisive marks in this scroll hover between calligraphic signage and topography, inviting the viewer to decipher their narrative – atmospheric, bold, and open-ended.
Charles Schindler’s wood sculptures resemble an animistic urban forest.
