Ice caps dispersing to the ocean depths, warning fish looming out of the darkness and plastic fossils of modernity. Artists from Wiltshire are embracing the vast topic of climate change to interpret our planet’s transformation. 

The event offers a creative and critical comment on our changing environment.

Rachel Heard’s response is an investigation into the environmental repercussions as a consequence of global warming. Inspired by natural phenomena her expressionist paintings tackle the physical forms of submerging ice, contaminated water and earth scars of damage.

Alexandra Gould was inspired by Marine Ecologist Dr. Alan Jamieson’s research trips. Combining his landmark discoveries of deep sea (Hadal Zone) pollution with the emotional response it evokes, she has created portraits of people and creatures to be valued and protected.

Daniel Gould’s ‘Decompression’ film is a series of sequences captured over the last twelve months edited together to visually describe the frenetic and emotional impact of modern life.

Composer Stuart Bruce has created a textural landscape that responds and resonates with the artworks. Inspired by his experiences and reflections on air pollution it weaves a connection through the themes of the exhibition.

Rachel Reid’s sculptures give form to ideas about single use plastics and the impact on the planet. Combining familiar human and animal forms with plastics, her work invites the viewer to draw their own conclusions about how life and plastics should coexist.

Also featuring an essay by art writer Katie Ackrill, the exhibition will guide the viewer through the influences and inspirations of the exhibiting artists.
