With respect for natural detail, New York based artist Alison Moritsugu captures a sense of wild realism in her "log paintings". Painted directly onto wood, with bark still intact, her images reveal the past and present of America's landscapes. While many pieces evoke the wonder that settlers must have felt upon arriving in America, others portray the industrialization and subsequent destruction of its land. For her upcoming exhibition, "inconsequence / in consequence" at Littlejohn Contemporary in New York, Moritsugu depicts scenes of our changing environment in new works that include sculpture and wallpaper designs.
