Steve Rossi: Structural Impediments  

Tues., Oct. 24–Fri., Dec. 15, Freedman Gallery at Albright College 

This interdisciplinary exhibition includes painting and sculpture inspired by the modernist grid and the language of geometric abstraction, while being heavily informed by the landscape of the Great Plains region of the United States where groundwater pivot irrigation is widely used to support industrial agriculture. Referencing satellite imagery, circles from irrigation, squares delineated by roadways, and the linear elements of plowed fields are drawn upon for inherent colors, forms, patterns and textures. This body of work bears witness to the unsustainable groundwater use supporting the region known as the “breadbasket of the world.” It is widely estimated that the Ogallala Aquifer will be nearly emptied by the year 2070 if current groundwater depletion is not more carefully managed. Through aesthetic engagement, Rossi hopes to question and raise awareness of the cultural and economic structural impediments that prevent sustainable natural resource stewardship.
