Michael Zachary’s drawings negotiate the relationship between technology and nature, and specifically explore the way that digital and logical structures change how we perceive the landscape and how we position ourselves in relation to it. His practice places the landscape painting tradition in a contemporary context and sees drawing as an emerging and experimental technology that is continually shaping our digital tools and is in turn continually shaped by them.
