Hudson-Inspired Art, Popping Up All Over

"...In the center’s mezzanine gallery, two Hudson River School works — “The Oxbow,” from 1836, by Thomas Cole, and “Twilight in the Wilderness,” 1860, by Frederic Edwin Church — served as the starting points for Purdy Eaton’s two identically named paintings.

While similar in composition and palette, Ms. Eaton’s images incorporate contemporary references. Her “Oxbow” includes cookie-cutter suburban houses along the shoreline, while on the riverbank in her “Twilight in the Wilderness,” she has added tiny lettering, phrases taken from Bruce Nauman’s 1984 neon “One Hundred Live and Die.”..."
