Mitchell Fenton: Play on Painting.
"It is not the destination, but the journey, that is important."
Mitchell Fenton continues a long legacy of landscape painting in Canadian culture. Yet with his new Play on Painting series, he opens up a dialogue on how technology affects our experience and, ultimately our journey, with the great outdoors. Landscape painting was an early outlet for the public to experience these remote vistas throughout history. Now through the magic of the Internet, anyone can find a Go-Pro video of someone hiking through the expanse of the Rockies. Mitchell's paintings invite the viewer to fill in the missing information: what journey or adventure takes place if they were able to hit play? Fenton has taken a very traditional genre of painting and created an interactive performance. One must use one's memories and experiences of nature to participate in the exploration.
