Onya McCausland

Onya McCausland (b. 1971) will create a site-specific ochre wall painting for the exhibition Landscapes of the Future with iron oxide, a bi-product of iron mining across the world. Saltburn brings the British landscape to Finland in a very concrete way. The unique hue has been mixed from pigments found at the site of a former ironstone mine in East Cleveland, England. The installation is available in an edition of two, for site-specific reproduction in the same proportions. Each edition will include a digital print, depicting an aerial view of the Salturn landscape. McCausland’s painting is connected to her ongoing research collaboration with the British Coal Authority: Turning Landscape Into Colour.
