SCARBOROUGH Art Gallery’s latest exhibition, opening tomorrow, is heralded as “a new concept in the study of the landscape and art”.
Landscape Revisited is a joint exhibition of photos by Joe Cornish and paintings by Kane Cunningham, aiming to stimulate a debate on the English landscape and encourage a reappraisal of landscape as a legitimate subject for contemporary fine art practice.
Mr Cunningham said: “It started as a gentle critique but soon evolved into deeper philosophical debate about the relationship and overlapping territory between photography and painting.
It quickly emerged that we were concerned about the same issues but expressed them in different ways.”
Joe said: “Photography and painting have never been easy bedfellows, and that tension has stimulated and informed quite a bit of the work that Kane and I have done in this period.”
