Robin Friend: Bastard Countryside

Recommended Don't Miss
This event is in the past
Every Wednesday–Saturday, through May 27
Blue Sky Gallery Pearl District (Portland)
This is an in-person event
British-Australian artist Robin Friend "upends the archetypal British landscape" in Bastard Countryside, scanning the terrain for the familiar oranges and yellows of his Australian childhood. Throughout the course of the project, Friend found what he describes as modern ruins—monumental piles of abandoned cars, heaps of broken satellite dishes, and more. The resulting body of photographs is anxious, pensive, and more than a little cynical, depicting a disfigured land torn asunder by its rapid industrialization. (If this kind of critique perks up your ears, don't miss Mishka Henner & Vaseem Bhatti: Energy Goastalso on view at Blue Sky.) by Lindsay Costello
