Landscape Remix features a group of contemporary artists whose work focuses on transcending historic expectations inherent in the depiction of the classical landscape. Even though the landscape is regarded just as influential and significantly vital as in the past, artists have become disconnected from the term “landscape” and any association with the word itself. Disassociating from rhetorical art terms can be sign of retreat to a singular need to redefine art, creating a proxy for individual understanding. The authority to substitute images for words is exemplified in the pictorial dominance of the digital age. This technological trend has influenced the artist’s struggle to redefine place in relation to self, reinforcing an anti-labeling taxonomy.
