Looking at Landscape

Authors: Wharton-Ayer, Noelle-Dominique

Abstract: This dissertation examines the exploration of landscape and vision in my artistic practice. My work is primarily concerned with representations of the natural world, how these images are incorporated into the everyday, and the ways in which our perception of these images shape our relationship to landscape. This investigation of landscape and vision is executed through explorations in drawing, printmaking, and digital collage; my practice is also centred on an investigation of landscape in popular culture, notably film and television. Finally, this dissertation outlines how my artistic process is structured by a logic of the decorative, which provides visual coherency and organization to the images I create while simultaneously displacing objects of the banal landscape into the realm of the spectacular and the extraordinary.
