Today, digital technology not only lets us reproduce landscape art, it allows for techniques that lets us make landscape art in new ways. Tommy Clarke for instance, uses drones to capture landscapes from angles we would never have imagined possible. Were it not for this technology he wouldn’t have been able to explore the relationship between land and sea in his landscape prints. In his work, the art lies and capturing the locations, and not in manipulating or enhancing his photo’s in any way.
Fascinated with the city is Tobias Till who uses linocutting techniques to make his landscape prints that explore his love of London, in its historical and present state. His landscape prints are characterised by thick lines created by the cutting of lino. This techniques is a traditional British printmaking method that carries with it a very distinctive charm. Working with similar methods, but inspired by a different view of the landscape is Tannaz Oroumchi who’s inspired by architectural language, to the point of abstraction.
European artists, going back to as far as the 17th century have been developing styles and techniques that for the first time featured landscapes, not just as the background for human activity, but as something worth painting in their own right, beginning with Dutch painters following the renaissance.
200 years later, in 1897, French impressionist Camille Pissarro painted the famous Boulevard Montmartre at Night. Different from the Dutch painters, his focus and that of many other artists from this movement was on capturing the momentary effect of a scene rather than accurately depicting it. Later, post-impressionist, Vincent van Gogh intensified the work of the impressionists by distorting the landscape - his most famous work of landscape art being The Starry Night in which the sky is credited with the raw and emotionally charged effect of the painting.
