Beyond The Window
Dominique Cameron - As an artist I am interested in mapping. My practice has evolved to include drawing, painting, text, performance and film. I am currently exploring how walking and the experience of landscape is brought together as a form of map to travel through, to tell the story of a journey.
I work with Fidra Fine art, Tatha Gallery, Whitehouse Gallery and Wall Projects in Scotland.
I was selected for this years VAS Reverb exhibition 2022.
As an artist working with the landscape, how do we explore and articulate the world around us? This four day summer school will focus some of these themes.
We will look at a brief history of landscape in art - how and where it began and some of the major movements as a starting point for us to begin making our own work – this will include the interior, domestic landscape, the view beyond the window, the wider landscape and finally an overview of our place within the environment.
We will be walking, drawing, painting and most importantly, exploring. No experience is required - just a sense of curiosity and a willingness to play!
