Handling Collection- The Hepworth Wakefield


This piece is a translation of my 'Concrete' print, developed for The Hepworth Wakefield to form part of their handling collection of artworks.

The piece focuses on interpreting themes within Peter Lanyon's abstract landscape work to support interaction with art particularly for those with additional needs including visual impairments.

'reciprocal energy flowed between his painting and those who looked at them, so that, in effect, an image was only completed by the viewers reaction to it’- of Peter Lanyon.

The tactile nature of this piece invites individuals to engage with it through both sight, and touch, within that enabling an individual response to the imagination of ones own landscape.
