The relationship between artists and nature has been celebrated throughout history, with landscape painting and honoring the sublime often being at the forefront of respected art. Even with abstraction, references to the natural world are common. The urban landscape, however, has not been as extensively explored. “The Built Environment” is a collection of artists who are inspired by the manmade world featuring Luke Achterberg, Mary Didoardo, Joanne Freeman, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Noah Loesberg, and Gudrun Mertes-Frady. While working in abstraction, they incorporate elements of urban architecture, industrialization, and technology that occupy these spaces. Their use of line, color, and form are reminiscent of the geometry of the city, and their materials may be sourced from the city itself.
