Finch Lane Gallery Exhibitions Examines Landscapes and the Human’s Place in them @ Finch Lane Gallery
Mar 27 all-day
Finch Lane Gallery Exhibitions Examines Landscapes and the Human's Place in them @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Beginning March 6 and running through April 17, artist Mark England exhibits his landscape paintings in “Human Landscapes.” Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer use weather maps, data graphics, and projections on sculpture to document weather along the Wasatch Front in their installation “You Are Here.” An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8 PM.

Mark England, a well-known Utah landscape painter, focuses on how individuals see themselves through landscape and impose upon it their values. He uses full-sized figures within the landscapes, thus creating a whole new relationship and raising many questions. England twists perspectives, visually and historically, by juxtaposing unrelated buildings and events to produce a scene that could take place at any point in time. “In a sense, my paintings are anthropological; in them, I often dwell on the values, activities, and events of ancient and contemporary cultures, ‘tracing’ the traces they left behind,” says England. “These are records of how we impact, leave our mark, our history, on the earth.”

The destination marker “You Are Here” takes on new meaning in the exhibition of the same name by Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer. Using an approach that is both scientific and abstract, the artists seek to overlay the unseen processes on the well-known domain of the Wasatch Front. Using topographical and environmental data, visual representations reveal environmental fluxes that are not otherwise perceived in daily life. Through “maps” that interpret hydrological and experiential data, Vaughn and Arthofer introduce an intimate version of the Wasatch Font over time that is both science and experience. Central to the exhibit is a large topographical map cast of plaster that becomes the surface on which data and time-lapse experience is projected.

Tuesday, March 31 | 7pm | FREE

Last fall the Friends of Contemporary Art (FoCA) continued their annual tradition of acquiring a new artwork for the UMFA’s permanent collection of modern and contemporary art. Over an evening of dinner and dancing, FoCA members viewed and debated the merits of three potential acquisitions. Ultimately, the group voted to acquire a video work titled Untitled (Mylar) (2011) by New York-based artist William Lamson. Filmed in the Mojajave Desert, the silent video captures the brilliant reflections of a Mylar blanket as it is pushed, rolled, folded and carried by the wind across the arid landscape.
