Bleak Outlook explores the structural elements of landscape in its various formations, shapes and undulations that link with nature’s inbuilt time rhythm. The perspectives are varied to induce the feeling of being both within the landscape and looking beyond it: frontal, on the edge, diagonal, horizontal, vertical, angled and aerial. The spaces where the land meets the sea and air are carried forth in relation to the depiction of mountains, various rock formations and geological details. The works are produced within the spirit of Anthropocene, looking at the landscape in relation to human intervention as it stands.
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Sunday 15 September 2019
