Working digitally Ian distills the landscape down to a reduced minimal. In this new body of Linescapes Ian has produced a body of work that take ’The View’ as inspiration. Whilst embedded in traditional landscape art this work also explores the language of abstraction.
Through painting and within the historical tradition of nature print Stef documents place and space. For this exhibition she has produced series paintings, monotype prints and sculptural pieces which explore walking through the landscape. A collection of artists books document sections of the trail.
