Arcadia for All? Rethinking Landscape Painting Now

Really pleased to be invited to exhibit in this exciting Landscape painting show with a great line up of artists. Thank you to the curators Judith Tucker & Geraint Evans and to Laura Claveria for coordinating it.

Arcadia for All? Rethinking Landscape Painting Now
26 April – 29 July 2023
The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, Parkinson Building, University of Leeds

Is landscape wild or cultivated? Is landscape urban or green? Is landscape going or gone?
Is landscape ours or theirs?
This exhibition challenges our expectations of landscape painting. It rethinks landscape in the 21st century – a time of climate crisis, a post COVID-19 world, a post-colonial and capitalist era.
The exhibition has been guest curated by Judith Tucker, Senior Lecturer at the School of Design, University of Leeds and Geraint Evans, Pathway Leader MA Painting at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London.
