A series of paintings by artist Jessie Davies, focussing on the impact of global warming on estuary habitats.

About

Jessie Davies often finds herself  immersed in the reed beds of the estuary, drawing, painting and investigating the fragile ecologies of these threatened freshwater habitats. Jessie’s work for ‘Climate Change: Wetlands’ exhibition,  focuses on the impact of climate change on these wetlands and associated estuary environments.

As Jessie has spent most of her life in a wheelchair, she is able to experience the wetlands from close to the ground, surrounded by the foliage, down by the water with limited freedom of movement whilst the weather conditions and light change all around her.  The paintings are rough textured and full of restless movement, depicting an environment in flux.  Whilst outwardly colourful and atmospheric, they also reveal darker, more disturbing undercurrents. Through colour and texture Jessie’s artwork reflects on the fundamental interdependence of humankind and the natural world.

The exhibition is produced in collaboration with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
