A Trail of Petals and Dirt
7 - 24 June 2017
Opening Night Tuesday 6 June 2017, 5-7pm
A Trail of Petals and Dirt is a painting and printmaking exhibition responding to the contemporary, controlled relationship between humans and Nature. This exhibition is a reaction to the Anthropocene age, in which all environments are in some way effected by human activity. In particular, looking at the ways we confine Nature through practices of gardening, farming, horticulture and indoor plants. These works provide a space to challenge what Nature looks like today, and how we define and interact with it. Playing with an abstract expression of colour and texture, Douglas Schofield explores an alternative way of engaging with the natural world.
