Through displaying artwork that raises questions about the survival of endangered animal species, the landscape, and the human race, we hope to generate awareness about environmental issues.

About

Elaine Jordan - I make sculpture and also use drawing, collage and printing to explore man's shifting, fragile relationship with the environment, natural and man-made. I enjoy experimenting with materials, usually recycled and reused, and construction techniques, with their possibility to surprise, and confound our expectations, for instance, in the weight and surface of a work.

Hannah Melvin - I will exhibit hyperreal portraits, using drawing and painting, in the ubiquitous selfie format, of fragments and close ups of humans and sheep in an exploration of our similarities and differences, an act of resistance to contemporary global culture's homogenising notions of beauty. Using a fragmentary approach I will explore mans perception of beauty, diversity and aspirations towards ‘a look’.

Ellie Tate - I am inspired by and dedicated to animal welfare, protection and conservation, and I am also greatly interested in anthropomorphism. I will exhibit portraits representing animal species which are critically endangered. I am interested in infusing traditional and historical elements of portraiture, namely the composition of the head and shoulders, with more bold, wild portraiture styles, such as the expressionist portraits of the early twentieth century.
