“Plastic Garden” at Asya Geisberg
The mind-melting heat of summer finds a visual equivalent in this exhibition of landscapes that are all in various ways synthetic, from toxic colored skies to looming, mammoth flora. The seven-person show hints at the enduring legacies of Henri Rousseau’s fantastical jungle scenes and Georgia O’Keeffe desert scenes. Emma Webster’s baroque-meets-Lisa-Frank scenes are at once decadent and dystopian.
