To Dec. 31, 2017 Landscape paintings are one thing—painted landscapes, quite another. It’s a specialty of Vancouver-based artist Andrew Dadson, who is known for using plants as canvas, covering them in non-toxic pigment. Over time, new leaves and greenery emerge, a reminder that nature isn’t so easily tamed (“House Plants,” pictured). Other modern works by the artist are equally eye-catching: a series of sculptural paintings, and a film projected on two screens, with one playing forwards and the other in reverse.
