The Open Air Drawing-Room

Eric MacLennan: The Open Air Drawing-Room

The Open Air Drawing-Room … begins with an antiquated artists drawing group setting up for some landscape painting. Arrival and un-packing of folding stools, easels, flasks, other knick-knacks and sandwiches etc… But this is no ordinary show - for the audience will be drawn into the group! Inspired by JMW Turner. A story that delightfully mixes historical biography with the fast contemporary world we now occupy. An invitation to slow-down. Paint a stone - for Turner - for The Turner Contemporary! Selected from…31 stones - a “mini museum” - each one from the coast of the British isles and named after the atmospheric areas of the shipping forecast . These stones were old when Turner was young. They will still be here when we are gone. We consider Time. We consider Art. Each artist (audience member) also makes a Cyanotype portrait which will be exhibited as a mirror image to the final painting - A Sea of Faces - embracing Turner’s pioneering interest in photography and his desire to find new ways.
