Atlantic Rim: Ecologies

John Maywood

Composed from two interconnected bodies of work, this ecological and environmental exhibition looks at the world’s changing natural landscape.

Brittany Rondels examines the intertidal zones on the west coast of Brittany, France. Maywood digitally merges the base and top of the cliffs. The round composition is like peering through a keyhole to an unspoiled, but constructed, environment. Towards Biosophy combines images from the historic site of Chysauster in Cornwall, England, and the peninsula of Snaefellsnes in Iceland.

These digitally manufactured landscapes are at odds with the natural environment. They allude to what the world may be pushed towards; climate change, rising water levels and human displacement.

Join us in the gallery on Thursday July 18th at 12:05 pm to learn more about Maywood’s captivating works. Light refreshments provided.
