Artists’ Statement:
Creating context.

In these drawings, prints, photos, paintings and videos, we are pursuing a deeper understanding of the environment, its life cycles, its layers of interdependence and the effect of climate change on these cycles. In this we are attempting to represent devastation, despair and hope within the broader reality of endless beauty. We hold firmly to the idea that beauty in the landscape and in all life forms is deeply spiritual and life giving and that even as the landscape is destroyed and rebirthed that beauty is present. This does not justify poor climate change policy which we are strongly opposed to but it enables us to find a struggling hope in even the most devastating effects of global warming on the flora and fauna of this beautiful land.
