A long-time represented artist at Sager Braudis Gallery, Cody McLouth returns this month with paintings diminutive in scale but impactful in their treatment of the unpeopled scenes Midwesterners will find thoroughly, sometimes nostalgically, familiar. The artist has always been interested in the way memory and perception influence experience, and how the identifiable features of a place -but also the not-easily-identifiable, general sense of a place–can become familiar to us. It’s this intimate familiarity that really connects us to a place, McLouth says. Carwashes, ball fields, parking lots, and junk piles are the everyday scenery and backdrop of life, and these day-to-day elements of our landscape make up the proverbial backyard we call home, elevated by McLouth’s tender focus.
