Exhibition: Murmur

Gloucester

Dates: 02/08/2022 to 07/08/2022, 09/08/2022 to 14/08/2022

Venue: Nature in Art Education Centre

‘Murmur’ is a collaborative exhibition by four artists.

A Whisper, a susurration, something caught on a breeze, a congregating of birds; but also perhaps, a word going round; the beginning of a movement, an uprising.

We have forgotten nature and now we are having to learn to mend what our forgetfulness has wrought. Art has forgotten nature too and it is equally imperative that we have to relearn a response as part of the healing process.

Artists:

Jo Biggadike

The work of Jo Biggadike explores what it means to be a woman, walking alone, connecting with the rural landscape. Her collagraph prints are created from her drawings whilst out walking. She wants to capture the feeling that a place evokes.

Andrew Morrison

Although a lifelong naturalist, it has taken years for natural history subjects to come to prominence in Andrew’s art. His work is prints and books; heavily text-based. Birds and their interrelationship with mankind are increasingly becoming his metaphors and subjects.

Julie Smith

Julie’s artwork dwells on qualities of quietness and intimacy, cherishing the extraordinary within the ordinary. As an Arteologist enjoying discoveries from the natural world, archives and imagination, pondering, noticing and wondering is delightful. Key threads explored within her oracle include fragility, protection and preservation.

Shelley Winnett

As a naturalist, wildlife illustrator and artist, Shelley feels an increasing motivation to create work for the purpose of conservation education. Drawing directly from life she endeavours to make work that is characterful, authentic and engaging. With a passion for birds they feature frequently in her work.
