LOS ANGELES, CA.- Kopeikin Gallery presents Meta-Landscapes and Visual Ambient Drones by Jason Engelund. This exhibition marks Engelund’s first solo presentation with Kopeikin Gallery.

Jason Engelund’s artworks encompass both the psychological and physical landscapes, together making the meta-landscape. Through these images he explores visual perception and its role in how we make meaning of memory and experience. These artworks draw from his early studies in painting bringing both his reconstructive techniques and material based approach to making composition. Engelund’s artwork was described in the photography publication 3200k as a “performative, and gestural abstraction of photography” creating new imagery of documenting experience and landscape. A. Will Brown in his article on the artist’s work notes "Engelund is distinctly aware of the conceptual and metaphorical capacities of landscape."

Engelund’s photographic images are made with medium format and 4”x5” film and are created in camera. He abstracts the photographic process to show what is past the boundary of our vision and the landscape itself. Considering human experience and metaphors embedded within landscape he begins to trace new mythologies of sea and landscape. A revelation or idea had after long contemplation of the sun and sea might be inspiration for an artwork. While looking out at the sky and ocean, we might recall that the horizon is an illusion and that the sun never sets.
