For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists who have explored the notion of landscape painting: Anthony Garratt, Nick Martin, Jessica Lloyd-Jones, Arron Kuiper and Inguna Gremzde.
High and Low, 2022
Public Art Installation, Snowdonia
Landscape with Cow Creamers, 2012
Three flat areas of colour, which could be used in a landscape, are arranged in landscape format. Images of two cow creamers, which could allude to animals found in a landscape painting, are presented adjacent on a white ground. Visual, physical and conceptual qualities of paintings as surface, illusion and object are manipulated to make them more evident.
Iron Landscape, 2015
During a residency at leitrim sculpture centre Ireland, Lloyd-Jones experimented with chemically formulating her own recipes for producing rust using various forms of iron and oxidizing agents. The work is built up in layers, colours emerging over a period of time and chemical changes taking place on the canvas. Rust has an imbued sense of time - the very nature by which it forms. Orange illumination references the flow of molten metal during iron production.
Landscape demonstrating technique, 2019
A work created primarily as a way 'in' to my technique allowing better understanding of the construction and existence of other works.
Landscape Collection for Subconscious Need, 2012
Miniature landscapes placed in bottle caps, 2.5cm in diameter each.
