The Tempest

This exhibition concept is inspired by two painters from art history: Romanticist landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner and Italian Renaissance Master, Giorgione. In particular, the palette and tumultuous seascapes of Turner and the famous narrative scene “La Tempesta” from Giorgione. Both artists approach the concept of the tempest whether it be on land, sky or sea. Exhibiting artists are asked to consider the storyline and sense of foreshadowing as seen in Giorgione’s “La Tempesta” and the gravity of Turner’s seascapes through their own artistic explorations. Artists as always will have creative freedom in concept and execution. The tempest may be perceived as one within the psyche, a meteorological calamity, or something different entirely.
