Fields of Vision is an inspired land art programme animating the route of the Yorkshire Grand Départ across the stunning landscape of the South Pennines. Artists have interpreted the distinctive features of the South Pennine uplands, responding to the drama of the countryside and the abundant creativity, diversity and playfulness of its people.
The artworks vary from huge drawings made from different colours of grass, to beautiful imagery created by techniques like collage, pitchmarking and cutting to transfer them on to the living canvasses of the fields and sloped terrain of reservoir banks.
Fields of Vision has brought together those who work the land, the creative community and local people to sow and weave original designs into the stunning South Pennines landscape. The installations are designed to grow and flourish during the Yorkshire Festival to really put the South Pennines on the map during the Tour de France and beyond.
We really hope you enjoy the ideas expressed here and that you go out into the South Pennines to seek out and enjoy the artworks and our extraordinary landscape that surrounds them.
Fields of Vision was created for Yorkshire Festival 2014 with support from the Arts Council, England, Yorkshire Water, Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire Local Authorities
