12th November, 2022 to 26th February, 2023
Turner Prize nominee Ingrid Pollard is one of 14 artists represented in a new exhibition celebrating landscape through the language of contemporary painting.
Expanding Landscapes: Painting After Land Art comes to Hestercombe Gallery on 12th November, and brings together historical works by artists associated with Land Art, as well as prints from Pollard’s 2001 Landscape Trauma series and six contemporary artists who engage directly with landscape through the language of painting.
Works by artists associated with Land Art including Nancy Holt, Andy Goldsworthy Robert Smithson, Richard Long, Michelle Stuart and Roger Ackling, these will be on show alongside contemporary works by painters such as Hannah Brown, Onya McCausland, Fred Sorrell and Jessica Warboys.
From the period of when Hestercombe’s 18th century Landscape Garden was constructed, we can trace a history of land art to romanticism where observations of light, time and human perception were seen as ways of thinking about nature and our relationship to environment. We’re delighted to be able to host this exhibition with its close links to Hestercombe’s landscape history.
