“We converse as we live by repeating by combining and recombining a few elements over and over again just as nature does when of elementary particles it builds a world.” (William H. Gass)

Casemore Kirkeby are pleased to announce the opening of Sean McFarland’s first solo show at the gallery, Echo. Following his SECA award, McFarland continues his investigation into landscape as subject and its representation.

Echo approaches the concept of photography as hybrid: part theater, part documentary. McFarland actualizes the lineage of natural representation by affording the deviant: a coincidental conversation is revisited across the boundary of time, compelling the experience of the witness beyond strict documentation, while exposing the emotive mythology of the landscape.
