key concept 21/11/16

During the key concept lecture today, we looked at nature vs industrialisation. This fits in extremely well with my field work, as I am looking at humans influence over nature. Within this debate, it is often seen as though human are the ones destroying nature, however, there are pieces of art work created by humans in order to protect art work, such as Beuys trees in Dusseldorf in Germany. Because these are seen as an artwork, it is illegal to chop them down and are therefore a way of preserving nature. I would be very interested in looking at how my work could influence nature directly or even indirectly by leaving a message to the viewer that they will remember.

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.
