SUBLANDS - EXHIBITION






Sublands presented work made over the past 3 years by artist Pete Hillstrom. The multimedia body of work centers on representations of Midwestern Americana with a suburban edge. They touch upon themes like consumption, conformity, aggression and banality while simultaneously serving as an homage to the conflicted nostalgia one feels for a culture to which one is born into. Darkly humorous, the works emphasize the duality that lies between the glossy veneer and the unsettling characteristics revealed underneath this American construct.
