As part of a season of exhibitions exploring the theme of wilderness, The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present paintings, drawings, photographs and film works by a group of artists whose works engage with the natural world and our innate need for solitude, peace and open space. From barren high-altitude salt deserts and snow-blanketed mountain tops to environments in transition such as coastlines and volcanoes, the artists bring into view the truly wild places on our planet. Film works by Ben Rivers and Esther Johnson focus on marginal individuals who have chosen to move away from society, living precarious existences in remote places where nature rules.
