About

The landscape of Yorkshire has always inspired artists, whether it's the stunning familiar contours of Roseberry Topping or the controversial contemporary slant of Knipe Point, photographer Joe Cornish and artist Kane Cunningham continue this tradition. This year they will be working with curator Jan Bee Brown to revisit the fabulous collection of landscape paintings held in store. Inspired by the work of Paul Marny, H. B. Carter, Atkinson Grimshaw and Ivon Hitchens, Kane and Joe will explore the context, tradition and future of landscape painting and photography in very different ways. Working at specific locations both will ‘stalk' an image; Joe waits for the perfect moment when light, colour and composition simply ‘sing', whilst Kane challenges the landscape to take him on a visual flight of the imagination. Working individually and collaboratively to push their work in fresh directions they will be our visual correspondents on the ground, responding swiftly as time and tide change our coastline. As we invite politicians, geologists, walkers and visual artists to tell us how the landscape inspires them, come along, join the debate and enjoy a breath of fresh air.
