I have been making work for an exhibition next month in London. Curated by Sian Harris, it is called “The Great Purpose of Landscape Art is to Make Us at Home in our Own Country”. Not sure exactly what this means – but I’m certainly all for making oneself at home on this planet: in fact it is the dominant theme of my work. 

 

It is described on the Great Purpose website as ‘Artists working across a wide range of media responding to the idea that landscape art plays a pivotal role in our sense of identity and belonging.’

... and another. 16 of these panels to be assembled into a large composite piece.

VENUE The Art Pavilion, Mile End Park, Clinton Road (off Grove Road), Londo E3 4QX.

DATES AND TIMES 16th Oct until 31st Oct: 9am – 5pm (10 – 5 at weekends).
OPENING EVENT 15th Oct, 6-9pm. 

There are some terrific artists taking part, and the show looks set to be both stimulating and inspiring. It will be of interest to all who question our relationship with the natural world, and are who are perhaps seeking a more ‘ecological’ point of view. Full details of the exhibition , with info on all the artists can be found on www.greatpurpose.co.uk.         See also my post: ‘What is Landscape?’

Looking forward to meeting old and new friends at the Opening on 15th October!

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.
