Jane Young

MA Fine Art | Class of 2020

My work is an exploration of how health and wellbeing can be enhanced when viewing art in nature. As as a form of Ecotherapy, working with the aesthetics of the natural environment, these immersive art installations are a result of my daily walks in the woods during the changing seasons of spring and summer 2020. Curious about the way in which colour can affect how I feel, and how together with light and form colour can change a space and have an emotional effect on the viewer, I have engaged with the outdoors, resulting in the natural sounds of birdsong and water becoming incorporated into my work.
