100 images

While in Pembrokeshire, one of the projects we were asked to do while there was to create 100 small images of landscapes. This could be any type of landscape, from a sea scape to a flower; as long as it represented what we could see/feel, something that would remind us of that exact moment. This is exactly what these images do for me, while I look back at them, I can remember doing each one and what I was feeling at the point in time. Although they do not seem like great pieces of art work when looking at them individually, after putting them together in a grid format, they begin to tell a story of my time in Pembrokeshire and I feel as though that has a great impact.

Some images in particular have inspired me to continue in a certain way, for example, the flower images, created by crushing flowers in between sheets of paper have encouraged me to look at creating pieces of work with objects directly from nature. Something from a landscape can create a landscape itself.

I am a landscape painter who enjoys spending free time exploring and wandering through natural landscapes, understanding that the space I occupy in this world is tiny and temporary. The aim of my paintings is to evoke the same sense of wonder in the viewer that I experience while on my travels and to ignite the realisation that compared to our surroundings, we are miniscule and blend in, we are not above, nor do we have any higher importance than any other being or thing on this planet. My large oil paintings are designed to be displayed outdoors after being inspired by Katherine Grosse in the Venice Biennale, making them appear small in their surroundings, much like the people in them and the people viewing them. However, my zines and watercolours require more attention, showing that even smaller details contain whole worlds and landscapes of their own. Depending on our own experiences we see the prints differently. The text along with the images encourage the viewer to see the same landscape I see.
