Keystone Art Space is pleased to present Strange Terrain, a solo exhibition featuring works by California artist Gregory King. The work in this collection is informed by King’s lifelong political concern for the tension between humans and the environment, and with our scientific progress, as the age of climate change has taken root. As the artist elaborates in a statement: “We are making the Earth alien to us. We have the technological means to do miraculous things as much as we can render our world uninhabitable, but too often we hope someone else is minding the situation as we doomscroll on our phones and buy shares in AI companies. The conflict between the creative and the destructive within us grips me, as a far better–and healthier–world feels so close to realization at times. "I’m currently interested in exploring representation, where a poetic ‘storytelling’ impulse guides a narrative taking place within and between pieces. This ‘narrative’ wavers between the personal/private and outward, more socio-political propositions, but it is set within a world beset by environmental and technological pressures."
