High and Low, or ‘Uchel ac Isel’, is a spectacular outdoor painting installation. The installation tells a unique and compelling story about the history, geography and industrial heritage of North Wales, encouraging visitors to make a deeper connection with the region’s dramatic landscape and the forces that have shaped it.
High and Low features two giant paintings, created in two very different dramatic and inspiring sites: one floating high on the flanks of Snowdon on Llyn Llydaw, and one hung low, deep beneath the mountains in an abandoned slate cavern.
Each of the two location offers a unique and arresting opportunity for highly visual storytelling and contemplation: from the soaring light and reflected imagery of the mountain lake to the dark atmospheric shadows and acoustics of the abandoned slate cavern.
Both of these sites have great historical and geographical significance. Because the paintings were created in situ and then seen in context, they will offer a very different way for the viewer to engage with both the art and the landscape which inspired it.
