About The Exhibition


In his post-sabbatical exhibition, Washington and Lee Assistant Professor of Art Sandy de Lissovoy presents sculptural constructions that explore interactions between landscape and mapping. De Lissovoy's work applies the aesthetics of abstraction to reflect upon issues of contemporary environmental conditions. Combining diverse materials, such as metal and hand-dyed fabrics, de Lissovoy seeks an expression that resides between the accuracy of satellites and the poetry of imagined past and future landscapes. The show will also include collaborative works that are a visual conversation about translation, migration, proximity, and distance, made with Mexican artists Ander Azpiri and Griselda Rosas. This exhibition was curated by Paula Burleigh, Assistant Professor of Art History at Allegheny College.

Sandy de Lissovoy earned an M.F.A. from the University of California, Irvine, and a B.F.A. with Honors from CCA, San Francisco. He has had solo shows at Augustana University, Whittier College, Commonwealth and Council Gallery, Monte Vista Projects and Las Cienegas Projects. He has been a resident at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Sculpture Space, and the Banff Centre in Canada.
