From the museum:
This body of new work by Eva Struble explores landscape altered by humans, and human infrastructure altered and adopted by plants: mutualism, or at turns, a collision. The dreamlike landscapes are rendered in strange hues, multiple textures and painting styles, remaking familiar landscapes into uncanny sites. The title, Midden, refers to a refuse heap, made by animals or humans. Rediscovered middens, like time capsules, can give clues about the habits or desires of a group. Struble takes inspiration from locations such as a theatre hidden in the woods of Topanga, CA, to the graffitied rainwater tunnels of Adobe Falls in San Diego, to oyster farms on the Olympic Peninsula, which the artist explored on foot over the past several years before creating this work.

The exhibition can be viewed in the Joseph Clayes III Gallery and the Rotunda Gallery at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library (1008 Wall Street, La Jolla, CA 92037) during open hours, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
