This exhibition of new photographs
by Bryan Schutmaat
is the artist's first presentation at LRG. The Houston native, now Austinite, began making his newest group of black-and-white pictures in the spring of 2020 ("just as pandemic fatigue was beginning to set in") while driving deserted back roads between Austin and Leon County, where his family has a farm. The gallery notes say: "Schutmaat's new body of work calls to mind Emily St. John Mandel's 2014 novel, Station Eleven
, set 20 years after a virus wipes out 99% of the human population." (Sure – or perhaps it calls to mind one of these post-apocalyptic tales
?) But this is some fine camera-work on display, and we recommend it highly.
Through Nov. 7
