Review

Now this is landscape now. I don't think the genre exists anymore, and the now part of those titles usually signifies yesterday or before. There is no landscape now because people just copy photos using oil or acrylic paints. It makes no real difference whether they are painting landscapes or potatoes. These artists have never looked at a tree, and the ones who actually do are worse than the ones who dont. So dispiriting to see the heirs of Richter who have forgotten the original ironic conceit.
