Botanical gardens Plein air Painting/Audio box. Concept: Through creating a Document of recorded Dialogue taken during the period of time when an outdoor painting is being created, I want to present an artwork, which instead of purely representing nature visually, represents my experience of the space/time aurally. My project aims to analyse Plein air painting from a new perspective and think about how Plein air painting is romanticized. Working on a painting in a lovely field of flowers, painting from boats on canals etc, is far from the truth of painting en plein air in contemporary society, especially in public spaces. Through my work I would like people to think about this.
