German Romanticism was a genre of painting in the 18th and early 19th century which was inspired by the artists, "observing and feeling the world with the greatest reverence" [Asvarishch, B., (2008), Caspar David Friedrich and the German Romantic Landscape, page 43]. This notion of having a love for the natural landscape is something that was integral to creating this body of work. Referencing both German and English painting and photography, the work celebrates the beauty of the Northern English landscape and its natural formations. Subtle colour manipulation in post-production brings the work into a contemporary context, whilst retaining painterly aspects which allude to a Gothic atmosphere.
