We would like to share one conversation we had with one of the workshop participants. James Winnett – An artist – described his ideas on the painting called: A Spring Roundelay by Edward Hornel. This painting was placed at the Satinwood Suite at Glasgow City Chambers the venue where the workshop was held.
“Looking at it during the workshop, I couldn’t help noticing that all of the seven girls had the same face and must have been painted from the same model. At this point our group were considering the idea of engaging people by moving away from the grand narrative of climate change towards smaller, more individual concerns and everyday actions. I realised that the painting in some way could be seen as a metaphor for the multitude of actions that although individual are essentially part of the same narrative.”
