  • Nature Encapsulated
    Nature EncapsulatedEveryone has a different view on wilderness and their own definition and relation to it. Nature Encapsulated aims to explores the difficulty of defining wilderness in our current world and our ways to live within it. We aim to bring an optimistic perspective on the preservation and utilisation of nature and hope to inspire and incite positiveness. The exhibition is a recognition of the crucial importance of wilderness left on earth; the power of nature on the mind and emotional reactions to it;

  • After Isolation – Exhibition
    After Isolation – ExhibitionAfter Isolation is an exhibition gathering nine women artists from different mixed ethnicities dedicated to creating art under the theme of life after the pandemic. We designed an identity focused around the concept of 'New Beginnings'. In order to effectively portray this without using any artworks (as most were not made yet) we explored nature which was also a key theme in many of the artists proposals. We worked with a time lapse film of flowers blooming which we then blurred to abstraction
