(Excerpt from Press Release)
The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) proudly announces the winners from our Inaugural International Juried Art Exhibition – 32 Degrees Latitude. Out of hundreds of applications received from around the globe, only three artists were selected to exhibit at CMATO this summer.

Featured Artist: Rebecca Rutstein
CMATO is honored to showcase Rebecca Rutstein, a Philadelphia-based artist whose works are based on her interest in technology, geology, maps and the undercurrents that continually shape and reshape the world. Her large scale landscape sculptures and paintings are inspired by her prestigious residency aboard two scientific naval exploration vessels that traveled the world. From these missions, Rutstein has mined the satellite and sonar data to present the wild, unbounded grandeur of the natural world with a technological sublimity that grasps at the infinite possibilities suggested by computers. Jennifer Li, Art in America contributor, writes in the exhibition catalogue,

“With her unique background and experience on board the Nautilus and the Falkor, Rutstein brought back reports not of measurable figures, but paintings and sculptures that give form to the nebulous enigma of the sea and its terrain, inspiring and propelling the scientific community and general public with visual poetry and portraits of the Sublime.”
