ART GALLERY 2022 – THE LAND IS CHANGING
Current Artist : 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
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.
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.
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’
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
