Circulation is a meditation upon the practice of landscape painting and material use. Inspired by texture of both the earth and the 3d quality´s many paintings contain.
The project consists of ‘portraits’ of two clay materials – Kaolin and Bog Iron, and marries together the mould making processes of the ceramic world and material use of the painting tradition.
In the process a cast was made of the raw materials on their location, the materials were collected and made into paint. The paint was used to cast the landscape and create a painting or a 1:1 detailed map of the ground or a portrait of itself.
