From Above - Art

Artists, designers and craftspeople are sometimes inspired by aerial views. Ceramicist Carolyn Genders, painter Carol Rhodes and textile artist Alicia Merrett create artwork inspired by elevated views overlooking the landscape. The Boyle Family made casts of sections of ground seen from above. The Jazzberry Blue graphic design company create images based on international street maps and photographer Olafur Eliasson has made aerial studies in his ‘Birds Eye View’ series.

The Night Road, map art quilt by Alicia Merret. This is an imaginary aerial view of the earth below seen from an airplane coming to land at night. The fields are dark but the lights of the towns and villages are bright, and the long lines of the roads are clearly illuminated.
