Opening reception Friday, August 12, 2016 7-10pm
Landry McMeans (Tucson, AZ) exhibits her abstract reliefs and landscapes of the American West, with new inspiration from the Colorado River. Mountain ranges become groups of simple lines and colors, reducing the contours of the natural world into three-dimensional geometric shapes. Her work evokes the natural history of the Southwestern deserts and native plant and animal species in a contemporary minimal style.
About The Artist
Landry McMeans is a native Texan, who has recently relocated to Tucson, Arizona from Austin, Texas with the intention to live within the landscape that has been her biggest inspiration for the past decade: the Sonoran Desert. Purple mountains, neon sunsets, and saguaro cacti have been staple subjects in her work since she first picked up cardboard relief as her primary medium in 2005, while earning a degree in Communication Design from Texas State University. In addition to her visual art, McMeans is a songwriter and steel guitar player who splits her time touring nationally and internationally with her band Palomino, and Brooklyn-based band Gangstagrass (Emmy nominees for the theme song to the FX TV series Justified).
