Abstract:

"Alexis Rockman synthesizes human history, natural science, and landscape painting to create visual vistas that reveal unexpected relationships across time and space. Since the mid-1980s, Rockman has created a dramatic and distinct body of epic-scale paintings and works on paper that draw from his deft artistic skills, rich visual inventiveness, deep scientific awareness, broad art historical knowledge, and passionate concern for the earth's ecological future."

"At the invitation of the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), in 2013, Alexis Rockman began research for the Great Lakes Cycle, an ambitious suite of paintings and works on paper that the artist created over the course of four years. It will debut in Grand Rapids in 2018 and tour throughout the Great Lakes region"--introduction.
