Through the lens of his camera, Scott McFarland evocatively addresses the relationship between nature, civilization and representation. Drawing upon the histories of landscape painting and photography, he situates his work firmly in the 21st century, creating images by stitching multiple exposures into seamless pictures of astonishing detail and tonal range. McFarland's work emphasizes the way human perception of the natural world is intertwined with traditions of representation, and how photography's link to reality is simultaneously real and fabricated.
Scott McFarland will feature forty photographs produced over the past six years. Internationally recognized, McFarland has exhibited in prominent museums and galleries in North America and Europe, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
