The event creator says
Antler is thrilled to share with you details of our new show, featuring new works by Scott Listfield and Brin Levinson. This exhibition is an exploration of a term not as yet formally recognized by science, but which has been in common usage since the 1960’s. Anthropocene refers to a proposed epoch beginning at the point that human activity began negatively impacting the planet we inhabit.

Both Brin and Scott have been exploring these themes in their own distinctive and thoughtful ways for over a decade and we are very excited to have these two brand new series on display, side-by-side, at Antler.

Scott Listfield has become well known in the New Contemporary genre for his incredible paintings of astronauts experiencing different futuristic environments, often with prominent decaying man-made structures. In this latest series Scott explores the beings and geological formations that share or have shared this environment with us, as a way of expressing the intense impact of humans on the natural world.

Brin Levinson is a painter in Portland, Oregon and this is his second feature show with Antler Gallery. He is renowned for his beautiful oil paintings of urban landscapes, vacated by humans and reclaimed by wildlife. His distinctive style is defined by environments that oscillate in and out of focus. This latest series is defined by its exploration of bright colors and an intense focus on detail driven by strong line-work.

Both artists grapple with issues which are becoming an ever more immediate influence over our existence. They stand as silent observers to a world that “could be”, filled with derelict structures, untimely dinosaurs, and posing a question to the viewer - where are we headed?
