Mia Rosenthal American Landscapes reviewed by Victoria Skelly in The Broad Street Review

“American Landscapes” reminds me of Alan Watts’s comment in Zen and the Beat Way: “Some Chinese painters like to let everything go wild. But the ideal they are aiming at— and you have to be a tremendous master to achieve it— is to let everything go wild within limits, to create the situation that is orderly overall but allows unexpected, random surprises.” Discovering “American Landscapes” is precisely that sort of random and wholly unexpected pleasure.
