For my exhibition, I spoke to the manager of the café in Llandaff fields who agreed to me displaying my work in the outside eating area.
This was an ideal place for my exhibition as it was surrounded by trees and other wildlife, highlighting the fact that it was a landscape within a landscape. One thing I would change if I was to do another outside exhibition, would be to have my work displayed in an even more ‘open’ area as it was slightly closed off due to it being in an eating area.
I believe that it did everything I wanted it to achieve based on my inspiration from various landscape painters and the sculpter ‘Katherine Grosse’ who I discovered in the Venice Bienalle. As mentioned in my previous posts.
‘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 t
heir surroundings. Much like the figures in my paintings.’
