Picturemakers/Y Llunwyr: Changing Landscapes
Landscape in art is often the vehicle for lyrical and poetic painting but landscape can also be a much more contested area. In the age of the Anthropocene human impact is a central issue. With debates of climate change, sustainable agriculture, fishing rights, conservation, wilding, immigration, war and refugees, the land and the sea can take on new meanings. Picturemakers/YLlunwyr, a collective of visual artists working in Mid Wales, have chosen this title as an exercise to stimulate creative practice and bring together some of the diverse approaches in the group. Key themes for inspiration include land use, weather, geology, farming, working harbours, seaside tourism, war devastation and migration.
