Landscapes surveys Simon Denny's recent painting series. The artworks depict land plots in digital worlds. Map-like tiles representing ownership of parts of these worlds have been rendered by the conceptual artist in a combination of digital print and painterly gestures.
Exhibitions at the Kunstverein Hannover (Germany) and the Frans Masereel Centrum (Belgium) presented Denny's experiments with the imagery and technologies that underpin this phenomenon. These artistic gestures unpack historical resonances between ter-ritory, abstraction, and financialization in a new kind of landscape painting.
This volume brings together detailed reproductions of the paintings, exhibition documentation, and commentary by a number of prominent authors, including Christina Barton, Adina Glickstein, Martin Herbert, Omar Kholeif, and Fred Turner.
