Artist Eric LoPresti was raised in the deserts of eastern Washington state, near a plutonium processing plant that made fuel for nuclear weapons during World War II and is now the site of a massive environmental remediation effort. His current work explores this physical and psychic terrain, focusing on what he calls “the aftermath of traumatic conflict and the terrifying beauty of the American sublime.”
