VISIONS OF AMERICA: LANDSCAPE AS METAPHOR IN THE LATE TWENTIETH CENTURY. Martin Friedman et al. Denver Art Museum, 1994. Organized and published in association with Columbus Museum of Art. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 256 pp. with 215 ills. (154 col.). 26 x 26 cm. LC 93-45015 ISBN 0810939258 In English.
A monochromatic painting depicting an imaginary flood in Monet's garden at Giverny, a sculptural piece composed of an oversized oaken barrel balanced on a taut, scorched rope, and photographs of cars on the barren Bonneville Salt Flats are among the unconventional "landscapes" presented in this catalogue, which showcases works created specifically for the exhibition by Matt Mullican, James Turrell, Judy Pfaff, Mark Tansey, Bill Viola, Edward Ruscha, Mel Chin, Martin Puryear, Richard Misrach, Lewis deSoto, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Alison Saar and Meg Webster. Six essays discussing such topics as the changing conceptions of landscape among American painters and photographers of the 19th and 20th centuries, the metaphorical treatment of landscape imagery in "road" films and Westerns, and the cultural implications of current rural and urban ecological crises are supplemented by commentaries on the exhibited installations, sculptures, paintings and photographs and well-illustrated critical profiles of the artists.
