Quote Landscape Unquote

Upon first visiting Texas, Georgia O’Keefe proclaimed she couldn’t believe it was real—it was the “same big wonderful thing that the oceans and the highest mountains are.” Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present that same big wonderful thing as seen through the eyes of Hope Gangloff, Robyn O’Neil and Maren Hassinger at the Dallas Art Fair. 

Two years ago Hope Gangloff drove cross-country to paint the great environmentalist Julie Packard at her home in Monterey. The adventure took her through the nation’s heartland, inspiring a series of plein-air paintings that Jerry Saltz proclaimed as her best work to date. Executed in a bright, almost surreal palette, Gangloff shares the joy she finds in nature with a singular vision. Where Gangloff’s exposure was brief, Robyn O’Neil has spent a lifetime immersed in the awesome beauty of the Texas landscape. Her graphite drawings are a study in the sublime, rendering in careful detail the breathtaking, panoramic views of the greatest outdoors. O’Neil’s work was recently seen in her mid-career survey at the Fort Worth Modern.  Listen to Robyn's Ode to Texas on her podcast ME READING STUFF, HEAR.  Bouncing between New York City and Los Angeles, Maren Hassinger’s nature, in contrast, is strictly an urban experience. City life has inspired her to make her own nature wrought from steel and industrial materials. The collection of drawings shown here uses a textual approach, in script she repeats descriptors: “river,” “savannah field plain,” “ocean,” “floating” forming a mantra that strives to achieve the tranquility and peace one might find in nature.  All three artists engage with one another through their unique approaches to the landscape, each imparting evocative representations of their respective scenes.

On the occasion of the opening of the Dallas Art Fair 2020 Online, Robyn O'Neil has recorded a special Shout Out to Texas Edition of her highly rated literary podcast, ME READING STUFF... listen HEAR!
