With its origins in PhD research (Intimate Distance 2006-10) and through a series of dialogues with Professor Peter Merriman, Department of Geography and Earth Sciences, University of Aberystwyth, Webster addresses the practice of painting at the intersection of cultural geography, spatial theory and fine art. ‘Travel Projects’ is a critical reflection on a number of perennial conceptual issues for both geographers and visual artists in which the cultural geography of the practice of contemporary landscape painting/drawing is explored. These include the character and formatting of spaces and objects in painterly perception, questions of proximity, distance and relation, and finally the overarching question of spatial representation and ‘semblance’ in visual art (Massumi, 2011).
