Greenpoint Terminal Gallery is pleased to present Fake Light, paintings by Madeleine Bialke and Fiona Buchanan. Fake Light investigates a history of landscape that exists alongside reality—a fatal image of a quiet country bereft of people and abundance. Trees, stumps, cat-tails and oddities litter an oft-sterile plane, an environment suffering from mismanagement and resource plundering. Investigating overlapping concerns, both Bialke’s and Buchanan’s works feature unlikely light sources that suggest the lonely perspectives of the players in this weird nature. The American landscape, staged in this way, is both dismally empty yet full of an absurd, unexpected and often humorous life.

Recent solo exhibitions include Visions West Contemporary; Denver, CO, Davis Originals; Taos, AR (online), Deanna Evans Projects; New York, NY, and Harper's; East Hampton, NY.
