â€‹David Benjamin Sherry: Western Romanceproposes a conversation between history and contemporary art, combining in one gallery space recent works by Sherry with masterpieces of American landscape photography. Through selection and thoughtful juxtapositions, the installation also presents a conversation between artist and curator, maker and historian.
Sherryâ€™s photographs attempt to reinvigorate a long tradition of Western landscape photography, taking as their starting point works by the great masters of American photography, such as Carleton Watkins, Timothy Oâ€™Sullivan, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Minor White. They also attempt to reinvigorate the experience of being in nature, typically mediated today by photography and other forms of representation. By placing Sherryâ€™s contemporary photographs in dialogue with historic works from Cincinnati private collections, Western Romance explores the ways in which the image of the West has been hewn through photography over time into an iconic landscape â€” a landscape conveying majesty, adventure and endless natural resources.
