The instinct to discover and record the natural world is a profoundly human one. It is from close observation of nature that we begin to intuit the patterns that govern our universe, to understand its hierarchies and equilibriums.

This exhibition draws on the work of six artists who explore a rich tradition that spans medieval bestiaries, botanicals and herbariums to the collections of 18th and 19th century self-taught amateur naturalists. The exhibition encompasses many mediums including artist’s books, botanical drawings, etchings, photographs, entomology boxes, cutting-edge silk screens and stone-printed lithographs. The artists focus on nature to comment upon history, the passage of time, the fragility of our eco-system.

Participating artists: Mandy Bonnell, Tracey Bush, Marisa Culatto, Jane Joseph, Serena Smith, Carolyn Thompson.
