DRIVE-BY PROJECTS

Matthew Fisher, The Rising and the Falling, Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 16"

current project

Matthew Fisher, Julia Hechtman, Ernest Jolicoeur, Sue McNally

Drive-By Projects is pleased to present Transcendent Landscapes, an exhibition of paintings by Matthew Fisher and Sue McNally, drawings by Ernest Jolicoeur, and video by Julia Hechtman.

As they bring their personal interpretations to this traditional genre, Fisher, Hechtman, Jolicoeur, and McNally reveal an aesthetic akin to that of landscape mavericks such as the Canadian Group of Seven (1920-1933) and the Transcendental Painting Group (1938), as well as other visionary landscapists including Americans Marsden Hartley, Charles Burchfield, and Arthur Dove.

Inspired by scenes of great natural beauty, the works of these 20th century forbears expressed a reverence for landscape that approached the spiritual. The manifesto of the Transcendental Painting Group professed, "…to carry painting beyond the appearance of the physical world," words equally applicable to what Fisher, Hechtman, Jolicoeur, and McNally have brought to Drive-By's storefront space.
