otherworldly: optical delusions and small realities- museum of arts and design - new york, ny

gregory euclide has developed a microcosmic landscape installation entitled ‘held within what hung open and made 
to lie without escape’ made from park trash. the work possesses a landscape painting measuring 7 ft by 5 ft resting at eye level. 
it is set within a gilded frame that is interrupted by paper-as-water flowing from the canvas into the gallery space which then 
evaporates from a riverbed. boulders are cast from the rocks taken from central park, while the grass is formed from glue, paint and hair. 
on the right side of the work, several cut plastic bottles are clustered together, existing as miniature isolated environments within the piece. 
euclide created several dioramas constructed from found trash such as plastic, foam, sponge, and fertilizer he accrued while walking in a park. 
these items helped sculpt a world depicting what the artist sees as the ‘same kind of fake control over nature that allows us to be 
comfortable with the destruction of it
’.

What an amazing idea! Beautiful work.
