Georgoi Morandi - The Essence of the Landscape
I would now like to follow on from reading Shores text on the nature of the photograph, and in particular the frame of the image. I wanted to look at how the similar processes worked in relation to that of the painter. Georgio Morandi also used the ideas of the frame to decide what is to be included or left out of his painting.
His paintings I find in the similar style to contemporary painter and friend of mine Sam Heath
I found his use of colour and form were not dissimilar with the close up view of my landscapes. These views showing observation of shapes and forms and less of the whole landscape scene.
