View compounds ideas about perception with an image of a man gazing at a something in the distance that’s left to the viewer’s imagination. Rendered in the green and red tones of 3D cinema, View takes on the qualities of film with the suggestion of narrative, movement, and casual voyeurism. The figure in the canvas is near life sized, a device which annexes the surrounding environment as part of the painting. “I often aim for my paintings to feel as if there is a possibility of the picture extending beyond its edge.” Unwin states. “I painted the man pushed up to the right-hand edge of the picture so that he is almost leaning on it. I like it if the shape of a canvas can almost become part of the image.”
