Dennis McCart’s paintings in Contested Landscapes are derived from urban fringe sites that are both visually compelling and charged with implications of use, development and ownership. These sites of abandonment are often uninhabited for long periods of time – they are the city’s unkempt wilderness. His artworks are both a response to and an interpretation of the anthropogenic climate change we are living in. They also express McCart’s anxiety about the condition of landscape and nature in our world today.
