“art, like life, has had to begin all over again, for the very end of the world had been made visible at last. The artist may look safely over an utterly new horizon, which is the only encouragement the artist of today can hope for.”
–Marsden Hartley, 1921
When nothing makes sense there is the earth and the sky. A site for the body and a plane for the mind and the soul. While gravity tethers us to the first, it is often that we look up in search of the imagined––a dream, a memory of the dead, an answer to what’s next––but, generally, our gaze rests there where the two meet: at the horizon. It is from this anchor point that Big Sky, Daniel Gibson’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, spins off into a push and pull between the earthly and heavenly realms in a series of new sublime landscape paintings inspired by the high desert of the American Southwest.
