The theme I have chosen for my exhibition is "People in the Landscape." The artworks I have displayed in my gallery all contribute appropriately to the theme as they involve families, groups, communities and different types of people in the landscape. All the artworks in this exhibition generally include people in which have different meanings behind them. People in the landscape can be displayed in many different ways in artworks. Depending on the artwork, the meaning can be interpreted by the colour, shape, texture, background, surroundings and the mood. These elements can help us understand the meaning and context of the piece. We can learn that the artworks fit well into the theme of "People in the Landscape" by the obvious shapes and outlines of people, the dark shades of colour used, and the background images. The types of artworks can vary from paintings, sculptures or even a simple outline drawing. The shape of the people can have a major affect on the artwork as it gives away whether the people are realistic or in cartoon form. The surroundings and the environment of the artworks can tell us more about some background information, for example, in one of the paintings, the setting is a town and background objects include cars which tell us that it is set in a modern era. The colours can also help us recognize the era it was set in. Bright colours inform us that it is set in an earlier time period, whereas the black and white colours show us it was an older artwork. To conclude, the paintings of landscape art represent many people and elements in the landscape that we can respond to and admire.

Audio Guide Script: In this artwork of the people crossing the canal bridge in Amsterdam painted by Lene Schneider-Kainer, there are faded, dull colours evident in this painting. Clearly, watercolour and charcoal is used in the work, and the technique of brushstrokes are used. This creates the strong stroke effect throughout the painting which is one of its obvious visual characteristics. The date of this artwork being created was in 1927 where a captured moment of the people crossing the bridge was painted on paper. The black charcoal is used to create a shape of the people crossing the bridge and the different water colours are used on the buildings, the bridge and on the water to create a brush-stroke technique of the water reflection. Generally, there are gloomy colours present in this artwork and the outlines are not very strong which makes this artwork abstract.

Audio guide script: In this artwork of people by the blue lake painted by August Macke in 1913, there are a variety of bright colours with a mix of warm and cool colours. It is clear that the artwork is an oil painting, as the thick brush strokes support this. It creates a glossy look and the mix of colours merge in well together, as they are painted together to create the right blend. Rather than dull colours, vibrant colours such as a variety of yellows, oranges, greens and blues are all used to create a well-blended oil painting. The painting concentrates on emotion, representing feelings and mood with distorting colours and form. The visuals of a man, woman and a daughter may link to a personal connection with the artist, which gives background information on the artwork and its specific meaning.
