For the past 25 years, Sue McNally has traveled throughout the United States exploring and painting iconic rural and wild landscapes. Beginning with small paintings, she chronicles her ongoing relationship with the American landscape, ultimately creating one large work to represent each state.
McNally's abstracted landscapes bring to mind the works of visionary landscape painters such as Marsden Hartley, Lawren Harris, Georgia O'Keefe and Charles Burchfield. Inspired by scenes of great natural beauty, these 20th century forebearers expressed a reverence for landscape that McNally clearly shares.
Drive-by Projects's summer exhibition celebrates the American landscape, with a small selection of works from McNally's "This Land is My Land" series.
