Onya McCausland is an artist whose Turning Landscape Into Colour project investigates the origins of earth pigments found across the UK and considers their significance as contemporary cultural materials.
Onya explores the location, mapping and extracting of ochres from the landscape, and processing, manufacturing and naming individual sources of colour as vehicles for re-integrating people’s experience of places and establishing new connections between landscape and painting.
East Carlton Park is situated on the southern ridge of Northamptonshire, overlooking the Welland Valley. After discovering the rich seam of iron ore in the area, Stewarts and Lloyds Ltd established the steel works in Corby during the 1930’s, acquiring the grounds and hall at East Carlton to house workers. The grounds were later acquired by Corby Borough Council and have become a country park open to the public.
