The upcoming group show “Space//Squared,” opening May 10 at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco, examines the contrast between the man-made and natural environments. Put together by architect and guest curator Sven Davis, the exhibition features artists with a penchant for geometry: Moneyless, Adam Friedman, Mary Iverson, 2501 and many others. Iverson’s work is especially evocative of the underlying concept: She imposes linear grids over sublime landscapes, suggesting human beings’ need to systematize and categorize the natural world. Scott Listfield’s painting of an astronaut descended on an empty planet echoes a similar theme: Our anxiety over the unknown drives our impulse to explore, to make the land somehow less wild for better or for worse. Take a look at our preview of the show below.
