About

Joe Wardwell is represented by Fred Giampietro Gallery, New Haven, Ct
“My paintings integrate landscape, text, musical allusions, and abstraction to investigate myths about “nature” and national identity in the United States. Having grown up in predominately rural areas in the west, my commitment to landscape is both personal and political. This commitment merges with an interest in the distinctly American art movement of the Hudson River School. I am immersed in the history of landscape painting in the United States and how our relationship to landscape is historically linked to the defining of a national identity. From Emerson and Thoreau, to the early advocates of Manifest Destiny, to contemporary advertising- landscape and the American brand go hand in hand.” – Joe Wardwell
