Madrona Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Jeremy Herndl.
"Human Nature" is a collection of work that combines the natural landscape with big industry, inviting viewers to look at the beautiful and often contradictory connections between humans and their surrounding environment.
Of these works, Herndl says "As a landscape painter, ideas about land use, colonialism, privilege, and environment shape the way I look at places. I am interested in the stories embedded in place and how people and place are intertwined and expressive of one another. More and more, I am learning about how the body is affected by the environment, the air and water, and how that environment is shaped by human use."
Jeremy Herndl received his bachelor of fine arts from NSCAD in 1996 and his master of applied arts from Emily Carr in 2011. In 2019, Herndl was the recipient of the Helen Frankenthaler Fellowship and is currently the artist in residence for the Fairy Creek blockade.
