A significant solo exhibition of multilayered minimalist paintings by Onya McCausland.


‘Landscapes’ is the second solo exhibition at Anima-Mundi by the London-based artist and academic Onya McCausland (b. UK, 1971).

Following on from her 2012 show ‘Sited: Salt Green / Blue Earth’, ‘Landscapes’ will extend across all three floors of the gallery and focus on McCausland’s recent collection of paintings in varying scales and applicaitons, guiding the viewer through three specific and creatively significant landscapes : Saltburn (floor 1), Cuthill (floor 2) and Deerplay Hill (floor 3).

McCausland’s multi-layered, minimalist paintings and wall installations are made from ‘waste ochres’, produced as a result of the mining industry, and each floor of the exhibition will pay homage to the origin of the materials used, recording the aesthetic intensity and unique quality of each landscape.

McCausland’s research (in collaboration with the coal authority and UCL) has led to the creation of high-quality artist pigments in a range of rich, earthy ochres (ranging from primrose yellow to burnt terracotta) giving new purpose to an otherwise redundant and environmentally damaging material.
