An art exhibition by FOR NOW the Bath-based contemporary art group explores the dynamic of change characterising all aspects of the natural world and challenges the viewer to consider the extent to which this is caused by human action .
Annette Smith re-presents damp-distressed old family holiday slides as large digital prints redolent of transience and loss, poetic metaphors for an elusive past world.
Susan Cook uses stitch and recycled material to rework painted canvases in order to describe the fragility of the Dorset landscape and its vulnerability to the elements.
Stephen Magrath manipulates colourful inks on paper and circular painted boards to describe unseen flux on a microbiological level both ‘natural’ and as a dysfunctional adaptation to stress, pollution and climate change.
Mark Elliot Smith reworks small childhood drawings into large vibrant surrealist-abstract paintings infused with an anxious cataclysmic dynamism.
David Lewis-Baker’s atmospheric digital images inspired by biological forms remind us of the beauty of the inner architecture of Nature and the fragility of all life.
