Open Hours: Friday January 17 – Sunday January 19, 1 – 6pm

A solo exhibition by Flux resident Marjan Verstappen, Know The Ways is a critical exploration of colonial understandings of the frontier, as received through the abstract landscapes of Florence Martin. A virtually unknown contemporary of the Transcendentalist painting group, Martin destroyed her paintings in the 1960s during a crisis of faith. Using x-rays and rare historical photographs of the paintings, Verstappen has recreated a collection of Martin’s major works. Through these actions, Verstappen explores deep spiritual and cultural conflicts within Martin’s paintings, and ultimately, the legacy of guilt and greed within settler relationships with the land.
