Walking the Land’s selection of artworks from 18 Gloucestershire artists who celebrate and respond to our local landscape and greenspaces.
British landscape art is incredibly popular with the viewing public, reflecting our national affection for the countryside but also our fear of it’s potential loss. Gloucestershire’s countryside offers some of the most visually stimulating landscapes in the country. But as more of us live in towns and cities, we’ve become gradually separated from our landscape roots.
In ‘Outside Space’ we see local artists relocating us with the landscape and green spaces through their artwork.
Their role is to confront and challenge the viewer’s expectations of landscape and into accepting both the tradition of representational landscape painting, as well as a newer more contemporary interpretation of the subject involving other approaches, disciplines and media.
