‘The Landscape Paints Itself In Me’ (After Cezanne)





Painting in situ at local woodland spaces. Immersive painting as embodied intelligence articulated in paint.

The known world, according to Merleau Ponty, is a constant exchange of interrogation and reflection. Through our physical being (Body) in the world we are transformed by it, and we also by being in it simultaneously transform the world.

“The painters world is the visible world, nothing but the visible: a world almost mad, because it is complete though only partial. Painting awakens and carries to its highest pitch a delirium which is vision itself, for to see is to have at a distance; painting extends this strange possession to all aspects of Being, which somehow become visible in order to enter into the work of art” Eye and Mind 1964
