Drawn by Nature - The beauty of harsh environments
The exhibition "Drawn by Nature" brings, together photographs, paintings and poetry to highlight the hidden beauty of our planet. It is a response to the untouched and is a dialogue between photographs, the painted image and short poetic responses that explore ways in which nature produces structures and designs of great beauty.
The work of both artist, Diana Bell and photographer, Geoff Scott, pose questions about how humans respond to the environment and the future developing relationship with the planet, by focusing upon to harsh environments - desert and ice.
Diana Bell is based in Oxford, UK where she has won awards for her public sculpture and services to the city of Oxford, as welll as her work with children. She has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe, including France, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Greece, as well as Russia. Her work includes sculpture, installation, public art and painting. In this new work she is particualry interested in reducing the extraordinary stuctures of the Australian desert to minimal compositions of line and colour.
Geoff Scott is an Emeritus Professor of Higher Education and Sustainability at Western Sydney University, Australia. His main interest in photography and poetry has been around sustainability and the nature of place, in particular perceptions of beauty, in both its broadest form and close up. The photographs in this exhibition are taken from Geoff's travels to the Antarctic in early 2017.
