Van Gogh In York

I went on a fantastic trip to see the Van Gogh Immersive exhibition in York last week. Wow the projections of his paintings were incredible.

Walking into St Mary's Church where the exhibition was held, my first impression was how  impressive his paintings looked projected on all the walls of the church. Sitting down in a deckchair I was immersed in his paintings. His paintings were brought to life with animations within the paintings. This part of the experience lasted for about 35 minutes. Thankfully I had done a lot of research on Van Gogh before I went to the exhibition, because the one thing I felt was lacking was during the projection there was no information about Van Gogh or his paintings. This I feel would have made the experience far more interesting. 

Another part of the exhibition was a VR experience, this was beautiful and amazing. As I got to see many of his paintings and where he painted them, this lasted for 12 minutes and was by far my favourite part of the exhibition. I definitely recommend you do the VR if you go to the exhibition.

All together it was a lovely trip and I'm very glad I went. I certainly feel I know his painting s a lot better and seeing them portrayed in this way was fantastic.
