David Clarkson, New York (on view until July 28 at Cynthia Broan, NYC):
William Christenberry, Washington, DC (pics from Google Images):
Christenberry imagines the past from the perspective of an urbanite recreating rural buildings reminiscent of his Alabama childhood. Clarkson envisions a future pastoral on Mars with his models based on the architecture of projected Red Planet missions. Both are simulacra based on longing--for a happy past or hopeful future--as much as exacting documentation.
