Un-natural Landscape

January 9 – March 8, 2014

The Hall, Crane Arts, 1400 North American Street, 1st Floor, Philadelphia, PA

Second Thursday receptions: January 9 and February 13, 6 – 9pm.

Opening January 9th, InLiquid presents Un-natural Landscape, a solo installation by John Woodin in the Hall at Crane Arts (1400 North American St., 1st Fl., Philadelphia, PA). This exhibition is a selection from an ongoing series of landscape photographs. With this series his intention is to reveal the forces of order vs. chaos and nature vs. culture, while highlighting the incongruity of artificial order in the landscape. Most of these photographs were made in tree nurseries and vineyards on the north fork of eastern Long Island.

Woodin is a Philadelphia based artist whose landscapes, cityscapes, and still life photographs explore the relationship between nature and culture. His fine art photographs have been exhibited internationally and are held in private and public collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Allentown Art Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, and the Library of Congress. A monograph of his work, titled City of Memory, New Orleans Before and After Katrina, was published in January 2010 by the Center for American Places at Columbia College Chicago.

John Woodin writes about his art:
“I hold a strong belief in photography’s ability to analyze. As a documentary style photographer I make images that deepen my understanding of the world and my place in it.”

The public hours for the Crane Arts Building are noon – 6 pm, Wednesday – Saturday, and until 9 pm on the Second Thursday of each month.

Support provided in part by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.
