From "5 Works Of Art To See In San Diego In April" (KPBS)

Emerging Canadian artist Mark Laver is part of "Earth Sign," a group show at new local contemporary space False Cast that honors the use of landscapes in contemporary art. This 2021 work is a stunner, with inky black waters, swirling treetops and a sky somewhere between night and storm. It evokes something indefinable and untethered — narratives, loss, longing — and entirely wild. While there's always a place in my heart for an almost celestially golden landscape painting, I am here for the moody force of nature in Laver's paintings. "I Don't Know Where I'm Going, I Don't Know Where I've Been" feels beguiling and curious. Laver has four works in this show, alongside Jane Mackenzie, Emma White and Paige Twyman.

Details: Exhibition information. Opens Apr. 2 for appointments 6-8 p.m., then Monday through Wednesday by appointment beginning Apr. 5. -- Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS.
False Cast is pleased to present Earth Sign, a group show featuring Mark Laver, Jane McKenzie, Paige Twyman, and Emma White. Earth Sign explores new realms of contemporary landscape painting, where the artists push the boundaries of technique, style, and theme. By means of improvisation, documentation, narrative, and embellishment to create dreamlike landscapes, each artist presents a unique vision of their personal symbiosis with outdoor spaces.

Earth Sign will be open April 2nd - May 7th. Schedule an appointment to visit the gallery at

Gallery appointments are available using the online reservation system, Monday through Wednesday from 12 to 5 p.m., with an opening day of Apr. 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
