Upper Gallery

"When I was invited by the Royal Cambrian Academy to curate an exhibition of artists I admire, I knew immediately that I wanted to open dialogues about landscape. I’ve always been influenced by the Welsh
landscapes I've lived in, but it’s been a long time since the paintings and drawings I make have represented them in a topographically recognisable form. Even back when they did, it was an intensely charged
personal view, less about geography than my feelings for the landscape and my history within it.

For this exhibition I wanted to choose artists who would explore the interior landscapes that can be so important to us. The artists for the most part come from beyond Wales, this being an opportunity to invite guests whose work would not normally be seen here.

Here are landscapes presented through the prisms of the artists' imaginative lives. What became thrillingly clear as the responses came back is that landscape in the contemporary arts isn’t necessarily contained within a frame, though for the traditionalist there are some of those here, too."
