The Luminous Landscape™ has brought nearly 50 artists to the public in its 20 years as a showcase to promote a broader and deeper understanding of – and appreciation for – loose contemporary realism in landscape painting. Shahinian’s primary curatorial focus has been to show original, thoughtful, and well-crafted work by mid- and late-career artists, whose works eschew literalism (and, especially, photorealism), sentimentalism and commercialism. Exhibitions aim to expand the viewer’s definition of landscape painting and to help free those perceptions from more literalist notions and historical constraints and stereotypes. Exhibits honor past traditions and encourage a broader, changing definition to unfold. Shahinian also hopes that artists viewing the show will be inspired to seek more personal, less commercial, and deeper levels of self-expression.
