the landing, 2017

exhibited at the patton malott gallery, snowmass village. AN exhibition that reveals the inquiries and influences of Anderson Ranch’s four Artistic Directors. jose ferreira exhibits a series of photographs 20" x 24", ink drawings and sculptures.

The Landing investigates hidden content within the landscape, capturing the essence of collective histories through images taken on extensive walks. In photographs, drawings, texts and sculptures, I scrutinize the stories and strategies that miners used in the American West to survive the harshness of their environment, and endure strained social relations.
