The crepuscular hour (of, resembling, or relating to twilight) is rarely used in the pictorial tradition of landscape drawing, and rarely experienced by visitors to the Everglades National Park. Christina Pettersson’s drawings in The Unavoidable Twilight explore this dramatic waning light, conjuring mythological moments brimming with flora and fauna, and perhaps even an empire on the brink of collapse. Works on paper, videos and specimen installations show the landscape and its inhabitants in dramatic light, and are skillfully interpreted with affection for a bygone era.
