Mark-making with Beethoven in Cornwall: May 2023

Updated: Feb 23

A piece of music.

A single landscape.

Synthesising both in a process of mark-making whilst in the landscape and listening to the piece Glenn Gould, Beethoven Piano Concerto #5

For a week in May 2023, I immersed myself in walking, painting, and camping near Logan Rock in Porthcurno, Cornwall. As I listened to the recording, I simultaneously translated the Beethoven into expressive marks on a sheet of Indian handmade paper. The inspiration for this stemmed from the blend of the rocky coastline's musicality and the vibrant wildflowers, with a focus on the Sea Pinks. My video captures the abstract process of mark-making mixed with the Cornish landscape.
