Van gogh – Two people in the foreground, the way they are painted blends them in with the background and they become part of the landscape.

Turner –  People become part of the landscape, lost in the landscape rather than standing out.

I love this idea because it represents perfectly how I felt in multiple scenarios on my travels where I felt as though I was part of the environment; that I could just stay there and not move and still didn’t feel out of place.

Friedrich – Monk by the sea: Figure blends into the background – links in with the same ideas as in Turners paintings

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.
