Private tour of “Earthworks” with Lydia & Karl Bauman (25/3/20)
After Lydia's wonderful series of talks on 'the beauty of the outdoors', and her story of her own challenges as an artist, many of you got intrigued to find out more about Lydia's art.
Both Lydia and her son Karl are artists, and they have kindly agreed to show us around their recent show at Mall Galleries on the Mall, SW1: "Earthworks"
In the last three decades, contemporary landscape painter Lydia Bauman has travelled the world searching out indigenous landscapes of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Israel and the British Isles and interpreting them in her unique mixed media technique involving plaster, wax, resin, patinas, gold, silver and copper leaf as well as sand and organic matter collected on her travels.
Her son, the photographer Karl Dudman, likewise travelled widely across landscapes of Canada, Iceland, Hawaii, Morocco and USA, capturing them memorably with both film and digital cameras.
Their recent joint project Looking for Georgia - New Mexico in the Footsteps of Georgia O’Keeffe was exhibited at Mall Galleries in 2019.
As Lydia and Karl move on to prepare for their next ambitious project, Japan 2021, this exhibition charts the evolution of their respective techniques and ways of seeing in response to Earth’s beauty and diversity.
While Lydia would be happy to host our group as her guests, a token contribution for their time would help Karl finance his (unfunded) Phd on climate change.
Please donate at the end of the tour.
