Blouin Modern Painters

The title of Hyllemose’s show – “Landscape Reconfigured” – may be a tad pretentious and overreaching, but the works themselves are brashly alluring. The central idea is the contrast between natural, organic forms and ersatz or artificial materials: a suspended array of hillock-edged MDF panels swaddled in acid-lemon nylon; more nylon, paler and semitranslucent, wrapped around bulging, boulderlike stacks of concrete; ragged, dangling ribbons of paper dipped in bright acrylic paint. They’re simple pieces, but very effective at creating an atmosphere of slightly sinister sickliness.
