Framing the Landscape on Marsden Moor
Internationally reknowned Yorkshire watercolour artist Ashley Jackson is aiming to capture a changing landscape without his trademark brushes and paint with his new project 'Framing the landscape' in partnership with the National Trust and Walker Morris creating a permanent ever changing outside art exhibition.
The concept is simple but effective by constructing a permanent free standing over sized metal picture frame with the University of Huddersfield which was then installed at Wessenden Head, Marsden Moor, Holmfirth Yorkshire. The landscape of Yorkshire is firmly placed in the frame allowing visitors to gain a greater understanding of the surrounding landscape, an artist's view point and hopefully engage with schools and young children to become a significant reference in protecting the Yorkshire heritage for future generations.
Referring to Jackson's quote 'Many people look but only a few see', he hopes to re engage not only local communities
