A meditation on the steeped history of place and population and its relationships to nature, “Preservationists” utilizes obscure juxtaposition and mid-century modern forms as metaphor. Depicting a forested lake landscape in northern Wisconsin, the artist ruminates on the century-old cabins there and the renovations they’ve undergone while also considering the land before its commercial development when its only inhabitants were Native Americans, and even further back in time when nature remained untouched. The scene itself portrays a dense forest laden with sleek geometric structures and an out-of-place, mid-century modern globe chandelier shining above crystal clear water to create a murky mirror image. In the image’s surreality, the artist creates room to think critically about the state of nature and its protectors, to hold conflicting ideas, and to still find peace within these environments.
