Jonathan Beer reviews the exhibition Greg Lindquist: You Are Nature at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York, on view through March 10, 2012.

Beer notes that Lindquist "deploys many conceptual devices within the paintings... Photographic formatting and cropping reminiscent of television screens frames heavily textured scenes of minimalistic ruins. Typical suburban scenery fills crusty airplane television screens." Beer continues observing that "the hallmark of this show is his temporary suspension of that theoretical backdrop to find enjoyment and intrigue in the act of painting."
