David Maisel at Haines Gallery (CA)

Gallery artist David Maisel has an upcoming solo show at Haines Gallery in San Francisco. The show features his latest body of work, The Fall.

For nearly three decades, Maisel has created rigorous, captivating aerial photographs of landscapes affected by industry, agriculture, urban sprawl, and other forms of human intervention. Despite the political and environmental underpinnings of these images, Maisel’s work refuses didactic interpretation, evoking instead an experience that the artist has called the “apocalyptic sublime.”

In the fall of 2013, Maisel was commissioned to photograph the city of Toledo, Spain, for ToledoContemporánea, an exhibition commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of the painter El Greco. After completing the Toledo works, Maisel set to work on The Fall, depicting landscapes between Toledo and Madrid that have been impacted by industrial use, rapid development, and financial crisis.

The exhibition runs from January 7, 2016 — March 12, 2016
Opening reception with the artist:
Thursday, January 7, 2016, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
