Plain Air is the second in a series of exhibitions put together by the loose-knit collective/publishing-printmaking project called Apenest. Beginning as a way to create a rad and cost-effective art book, artists Brian Willmont and Cody Hoyt started Apenest by collecting artwork from their favorite artists, selling the work to collectors themselves and then taking the proceeds to self-publish their first book featuring everyone who contributed. They have since published 2 massive, beautiful full-color books that act as a wonderful compendium of underground contemporary art and have begun exhibiting their work together in a series of thematic group shows.

Plain Air explores the theme of landscape as the space we inhabit, falling somewhere between reality and fantasy. Some artists address the topic head on; Patrick Casey’s updated New England wall art puts a shocking twist on familiar imagery, while Conor Thompson has a more topical approach focusing on the alienation of the modern landscape. Others transform the idea of landscape completely as a form of space beyond physical constrictions and break into its total abstraction.
