John Warren's Future Tense will be on view from Saturday, October 14 through Saturday, November 18.
“Over the past decade, I’ve worked primarily with a 16mm Bolex motion picture camera to produce a body of work that makes visible the textural, symbolic and, at times, psychedelic layers inherent in the landscape. 'Future Tense' looks at construction cranes around Nashville as figures trapped by the ambivalent forces of capitalism. The piece continues my interest in the landscape, not as a mere pictorial representation, but instead as a point of perceptual inquiry to examine the outer world in an attempt to understand the inner world.” - John Warren
