Landscapes reflect a powerful convergence of
physical processes and cultural meaning. Works of landscape
art, therefore, represent more than a scene or a view of nature
- they are often portraits of the social face of our world.
Artists are keen observers of the processes of cultural change
that become imprinted on the land. The art works in the three
sub-sections of The Social Landscape
address issues that continue to shape our collective identities.
Political/Social looks at
conflict and social reform as they are reflected in peoples
daily lives. Environmental
considers the relationships between humans and their physical
landscapes. Cultural Identity
addresses the ongoing issues faced by indigenous and immigrant
peoples in our countries.
