KEMPER MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
 
 — By L. Kent Wolgamott

 
On Oct. 6, Kansas City’s Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art will open its major fall show, “Lisa Sanditz: Flyover.”

Again, here’s the Web site description of the show: 

“A Saint Louis native currently based in New York, painter Lisa Sanditz creates exuberant and engaging landscapes that mix the homespun aesthetic of folk art with the calculated gestures of postmodernist abstraction. The works are filled with visual reminders of human activity yet are strangely devoid of people.

“‘Flyover,’ Sanditz’s first solo museum exhibition, is a term referring to the vast middle of the United States, including all of the areas wedged between the densely populated East and West Coasts. Depicting real places in Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Alabama, among other locations, Sanditz brings a renewed focus to these underappreciated and less explored sites—highlighting their unique topographies and architectural structures while simultaneously revealing their connections to a global community defined by commerce, entertainment, and artifice. Lisa Sanditz is a visiting artist at the Kemper Museum.”
