Supernature brings together painters who explore the personal and political aspects of the impact of man on nature and conversely the impact of the natural environment on us as individuals and on humanity.

About

Supernature takes its title from the 1977 disco track by Cerrone; a rather kitsch approach to a discussion of some seriously pressing issues. The lyrics could be straight out of science fiction, but back in 1977 (and much earlier) there was already awareness of a developing environmental crisis...

'Maybe nature has a plan to control the ways of man’  

Supernature brings together painters who explore the personal and political aspects of the impact of man on nature and conversely the impact of the natural environment on us as individuals and on humanity. Once fantastical ideas offered by science fiction have quickly become scientific fact and often seem unimaginative compared to current scientific research and predictions. As painters what is our relationship to all of this and how do we respond?

‘Will there be a happy end, now that all depends on you’

PaintLounge travels around aiming to bring together painters to discuss contemporary painting in a relaxed ‘lounge’ setting with sofas and refreshments. Each exhibitor shows their work and joins the others on the PaintLounge sofa to take part in a conversation relating to current issues and developments in contemporary painting. Anyone with an interest in contemporary painting and the environmental issues raised in this exhibition is very welcome to be part of the audience and join in the conversation at this free event. We look forward to seeing you there!
