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.
