Ground Truth pairs the work of two artists individually exploring technology, landscape, topography and photography.
Andreas Rutkauskas’ Virtually There explores the impact of online research and technology on wilderness recreation. Through research of historic photographs, topographic maps and GPS tracks, Rutkauskas composes views of the Rockies in Google Earth.
Karen Zalamea’s Pierre/Paysage (meaning Stone/Landscape) began as a response to an architectural maquette by Canadian artist and architect Katherine Lapierre. Through process of assembling and altering Lapierre’s intricate model of a stone, Zalamea’s maquettes have expanded into deconstructed studies of material, light, shadow and transparency.
