ART GALLERY 2022 – THE LAND IS CHANGING

Since launching in 2019, we have shown several artists’ work in our space.

Each artist has a keen interest in the environment and the problems that single-use plastic can cause.

This year’s artists include Ali Elly, Nerissa Cargill Thompson, Chris Avis and Sarah Strachan  

Current Artist : Ursula Troche

May

Ursula Troche

Ursula Troche uses her creative practice to address plastic pollution by making what she calls ‘anti-art’, taking litter and embellishing it with other plastics and occasionally natural materials

By taking single use plastic out of circulation she experiments with ideas of the natural and man-made landscape and challenges how we experience our trash and the value we assign to it

Ursula is an artist and writer based on the Solway coast who incorporates walking, language, performance and litter into her practice

The Land is Changing – Previous Artists

January

Ali Elly

Ali has been working with Ouseburn Farm in creating a ‘Bee Wall’ fundraising wall.

Visitors sponsor a bee and have their choice of name added to the bee and displayed.

Her Bee Wall artwork highlights and promotes this community fundraising project, and raises awareness of the importance of bees in our environment.

February

Helen Baker

Each print is an anagram of Rio Tinto Zinc. They were created for an exhibition in the mineral gallery of Manchester Museum in 1996 and are about the colonisation of land by corporate bodies and Rio Tinto Zinc in particular.

The exhibition was called Divers Memories and artists were invited to make a piece of work that related to objects in the museum.

 

 

March

Chris Avis

Chris Avis is a London based artist who uses photography, digital manipulation and soundscape to create 2D work, installation and audio visual artwork. Her interest in climate change and environmental threats is an ongoing focus of her practice

This collection of images captures the impact of global overheating and the resulting wild fires.

This trio of work are entitled ‘Poisoned’, ‘Scorched’ & ‘Charred’

 

 

April

Cameron Lings

Cameron Lings is a contemporary artist and sculptor based in the Northeast. In his practice aspects of time, data and statistics are combined within the context of a singular formation, in order to realise a piece that despite its abstraction, remains readable as data

His work celebrates the imagery found within data collection and and how this form of visual art can help us understand the world around us.

He uses his practice to challenge our preconceptions of environmental space and traditional ways of collecting data
