Our Artists 

Many of the artists have reassessed the materials they use and are experimenting with more natural ingredients.

Others are illustrating the extremes which we are experiencing such as forest fires, droughts and floods, shrinking of glaciers, and melting of sea ice in the poles.

Others are concerned with an imagined future.

We are going to make an exciting show relevant to today.

Susan Cunningham studied an MA in Fine Art at Birmingham City University, 2010. Her artwork is about the definition of ‘nature’ and its presence or absence within urban environments. She documents her experience as an artist, following the Western tradition of landscape and still life painting from the 18th and 19th century. The practice is site specific and involves drawing and painting in the open air, utilising sketchbooks, creating model landscapes and artefacts.

Camilla Brendon is a mixed media artist who lives and works in London. Her multidisciplinary practice highlights ocean issues as well as environmental topics. She explores the relationship between manmade and nature.

My work is made using found and recycled materials, I turn them into representations of natural habitats and create new environments. I make site specific installations, performance and 2 D works. Creatures of the Kelp is a performance designed to highlight the links between sea creature sightings and unsustainable fishing practices and the involvement of kelp. The use of colour, playful experimentation with waste materials and working in the public and community realm creates continuity and a strong sense of purpose in my work.
