An exhibition of pencil and watercolour on our relationship with an environment that shapes and is shaped by the way in which we live.
There is an ongoing redefining of our understanding of conservation, as we learn more of our complex relationship with a natural world we are very much dependent on. A changing relationship wherein value is being increasingly placed upon the health of a habitat as a dynamic system, over the well-being of individual species. The challenge in acknowledging the importance of predators, weeds and pests brings with it the need to place ourselves on a more balanced ground with what we consider wildness. This body of work, taking inspiration from local conservation projects and activism, is a reflection on the idea of a "gathered silence" as the efforts to quieten our own appetites, in hope to allow this tide of indigenous flora and fauna to return.
