Eleanor Greer The Poetics of Space April 2019, San Diego, California, USA
The subject matter in this exhibition consists of built sites in central San Diego and the organic space of the San Diego River Valley that slices through its center. This body of work explores fluctuations in the landscapes that I have occupied, observed, and recorded from 2015 to 2019. My interest lies with what sits on the periphery of the urban environment. Images such as a fenced-off construction site are meant to be ignored, but their blocked-off state only entices further observation. The purpose of these works is to invite others to look more intentionally and find new ways of seeing the complexities of the daily world through the language of line, shape, and color.
