Between a view and a milestone presents a selection of works by Oolite Arts’s studio residents that offer contemplative meditations on place. While place can imply a certain level of geographic specificity, determining placehood can be difficult and requires certain physical and intangible parameters to make it so. The earliest depictions of place in western art history can be traced back to the genre of landscape painting. The exhibition’s title refers to a visual device used in this type of painting in which the painter includes an object in the foreground as a means of framing the landscape. Place calls for this sort of demarcation, but it also calls for an emotional connection that is highly dependent upon the individual occupying it. Places are felt as much as they are physically constructed. In this regard, the works in this exhibition attempt to understand the evocative nature of place and invite more nuanced explorations of time, memory and identity.
