Using Katherine Grosse’s outside sculptures as inspiration, I wanted to hang my paintings outdoors to see if it would have the intended affect. I feel as though this has been successful. The canvas, though still visibly large in size, now appeared small in comparison to its surroundings. An aspect of my work that I would struggle to obtain if I placed my work inside a room. The intended outcome from this, is that the viewer, after seeing how small the large piece of work appeared in a large landscape, would then compare that to how small they are when compared to their surroundings. Much like the figures in my paintings.
The only thing that I would like to change for my exhibition is the display. I need to measure the placement of the eyelet holes more accurately and to cut around the access canvas to tidy up he display.
