Benjamin West presents a body of collage work and projects influenced by nature and ecological issues.

About

Stormcloud draws its inspiration from an essay by John Ruskin (1), which describes the effects of early industrialisation on weather patterns.

In this exhibition, West presents a body of graphic and collage work influenced by nature and ecological issues.

These works were created by compiling a variety of resources, which are fragmented, lost, or unwanted from West’s surrounding environment. Following the principles of natural observational science, he passionately collects old books, photographs, pressed flowers and plants.

Discarded botanical and mechanical forms are combined with natural artefacts to examine the human impact upon the natural environment. Genetic modification, pollution, and urbanisation define the works in this exhibition.
