‘Resonance’ is a timely exhibition of artists’ responses to a pressing subject. It has also opened up a discussion about what is known of our planet and how we engage with that information. Rachel Heard’s response is an investigation into the environmental repercussions as a consequence of global warming. Her expressionist paintings tackle the physical forms of submerging ice, contaminated water and earth scars of damage.

Alexandra Gould combines Dr. Alan Jamieson's landmark discoveries of deep sea pollution with the emotional response it evokes, she has created paintings of people and creatures to be valued and protected. The film ‘Decompression’ is a self-portrait exploring the multiple environments of modern life both rural and urban by Daniel Gould. He has also created the ‘Future Fossil’ series, a comment on the man made machines that continue to destroy the planet. One day we might hopefully consider these things themselves as ‘fossils’.

Inspired by the Aldebo triptych, composer and music producer Stuart Bruce has created a piece in three parts to bring the dangers of the time we live in to people's attention. While Rachel Reid’s sculptures give form to ideas about single use plastics and the impact on the planet. Combining familiar human and animal forms with plastics, her work invites the viewer to draw their own conclusions about how life and plastics should coexist.

Also featuring an essay by art writer Katie Ackrill, the exhibition will guide the viewer through the influences and inspirations of the exhibiting artists.

Resonance will have works available to purchase at a range of prices.

On 10th September all artworks exhibited at Resonance will be available to view here.
