Lise Gaston - Rob McLennan blog interview Aug 6 2017

Book cover

Rob McLennan's Blog: 12 or 20 (second series) questions with Lise Gaston David W. McFadden once said that books come from books, but are there any other forms that influence your work, whether nature, music, science or visual art? "Cityscapes was heavily influenced not by any specific work of art, but by historical ways of seeing, particularly the picturesque movement, with its romanticization of ruin, its coloured glasses. My work is influenced by place in general, whether urban or “natural”—I’m particularly intrigued by how unclean those categories are."
