For a brief time in the summer of 2010, the Olympic Sculpture Park looked as if it had survived a carefully contained fire; a large patch of the normally green meadow was blackened. Thankfully, it was intentional. The grass was merely painted by Vancouver, B.C. installation artist Andrew Dadson, who this year won The Brink, the Henry Art Gallery’s prestigious award for innovative work. His current show reveals his fascination with blotted-out (and painted-over) landscapes, which, despite—and because of—their monochromatic expanse, never fail to make viewers stop and take a closer look.
