Campsites, construction sites, and historical ruins: transitional territories between the natural environment and human culture. In this exhibition, Green has created a series of imagined scapes exploring these permeable interstices to consider how they work with or against the reality of nature. His images separate particular features of landscape images – such as mountains, trees, or glaciers – and reconstructs them in tandem with appropriated pictures of human-made architectural elements. Here, natural reality and manufactured reality meet in an eerie reflection of the Anthropocene.

Jonathan Green is of Mi’kmaq and Inuit, British and Scottish heritage from Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador. He does not know a lot about his indigenous heritage but is trying to learn more. Green earned an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Alberta in 2016. He has been recipient of Canada Council, Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Edmonton Arts Council grants. Green was the artist in residence at SNAP Printshop in 2017 and is currently an artist in residence at the University of Alaska Anchorage, USA.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 5, 7-9 pm.
