About

The Wilderness Art Collective was set up in January 2019 and is a non-profit group of creatives, artists, explorers and environmentalists whose work discusses the natural world. The Collective's goals are to highlight the plight of the world's wildernesses and wildlife; to act as a space for discussion about our interaction with the environment; to encourage re-engagement with the natural landscape; and to promote preservation and care through art and other creative endeavours. You can read more about the collective on their website: www.wildernessart.org

The Wilderness Art Collective are really pleased to be showcasing selected works from

‘LANDLINES’, their inaugural show hosted at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) this September, at National Trust’s Morden Hall Park in October. 

Sam Gare the Wilderness Art Collective’s Co-Founder says “We’re really pleased to be showcasing the wonderful creative work of the collective’s band of talented artists, all of whom have a love for nature and the outdoors. Morden Hall Park couldn’t be a better place to continue ‘Landlines’ and sharing the values of the collective, due to the park being the areas urban green lung and the important role the National Trust is doing by conserving and sharing this green space for the local community and beyond”

LANDLINES: Explorations of art, landscape and the environment.

What is the role of the contemporary artist in thinking about landscape and the environment in the early 21st century? Landlines at the RGS(IBG) explores this question, showcasing fifteen artists from the Wilderness Art Collective, who are working in or with landscape. Using a range of media, they hold the common goal of sharing their fascination with the environment.

All the artists are committed to making work that celebrates the best aspects of our planet whilst offering insights into the challenges we face today through mass consumption, urban expansion and climate change. As artists they share messages of positivity and simultaneously question the choices we are making as global citizens and guardians.

Working in a range of media, the artists engage in all manner of practices. These include: long-distance walks; collecting pigments from remote places on the planet; epic cycle rides across entire countries or dangerous swims in British winter seas.

Landlines was in aid of the Wilderness Foundation UK, who empowers people to conserve nature and harnesses the power of the wilderness to transform vulnerable lives.
