Through Landview Effect, Wolfe constructs nuanced memorabilia from mythological travel destinations. These objects serve to comment on increased human disconnection from the natural world, so often spurred by the ubiquitous use of techonology. Wolfe's prints and travel brochures for these dystopian destinations depict recognizable landscapes, overlaid with saturated pigments and tinctures also used in her water installations. Alongside Associate Director Caitlin Berry, Wolfe will discuss her exploration of sustainable "green" printmaking, its history in the US and abroad and its relationship to her current body of work.
