Exhibition Displacement

ANCA Gallery 22 October – 2 November 2008:

Displacement was an exhibition which highlighted the bizarre, the beautiful and the fragile aspects of the oceans. It operated as a vast Wunderkammer or curiosity cabinet and emphasised the importance of the oceans both in an aesthetic and intellectual sense, and to remind us that we belong to a vast, living planet that is incredibly beautiful, terribly fragile, and at times quite bizarre.

Through paintings of still life, fish portraits and sponge, I used my status as artist to act not only as a privileged interpreter of nature but as an inventor. To achieve this many of the works were distorted and exaggerated to emphasize the sometimes quirky nature of the world beneath the sea. The works aimed to excite curiosity to the diversity of our oceans and the life therein and to enlist help in their protection.
