IAIN MACHELL   Drawings and Sculpture
Oil on canvas
PEEL consists of 2 canvases, 18’ long and covered in oil paint, that poke fun at the romantic tradition of landscape art. Instead of a painting OF the landscape PEEL is a painting IN and FROM the landscape. Instead of a mediated experience of nature, filtered through an artistic sensibility and swollen with technique, PEEL is a direct imprint from the trees pulled off the surface like a print or a bandage. This is an investigation into the nature of the landscape, and human intervention in the landscape.
PEEL has been installed for the 2013 Chesterwood Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition in Stockbridge, MA, and for the 2015 Kingston Sculpture Biennial in Kingston, NY
