Is This Planet Earth? coming soon to the Ferens Gallery Hull

4th May 2019 to 28th July 2109

Visitors will encounter wondrous creatures and stunning landscapes filled with colours and sensations that are heightened and strange. Beautiful to behold and often sci-fi in feel, the exhibition will have darker undercurrents relating to our destruction of nature. The varied artistic work pays homage to visionary sci-fi writers and filmmakers who conjured apocalyptic landscapes and creatures such as; J.G Ballard, John Wyndham and Douglas Trumbull, to name just a few.

Monumental at HAF

An exhibition of surreal landscape paintings and drawings by local artist Katherine Reekie. This collection of recent and past works explores our fascination with the monumental.  From standing stones to topiary, the world is covered in impressive examples of humanity’s ability to create art in the landscape. Katherine presents a series of imagined scenes that explore the strange and powerful effect that scale and environment have on our perception.  Her intention is not to depict reality but to nudge people to question and consider it. A Coastal Currents event.

Is this planet earth? moves to Aberystwyth Arts Centre

this is

I’m proud to announce Is this planet earth? opens at Aberystwyth Arts Centre this week.

14 July -14 of September

Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Aberystwyth University
Aberystwyth
Ceredigion
Wales,  SY23 3DE

Is This Planet Earth? features wild creatures, exotic plant-life and remote landscapes created by nine artists. Every colour and sensation is heightened and their sculptures, paintings, sound-art, performance art and videos are all a bit sci-fi.

What if life on earth has become just a memory? What if these artists’ re-creations of nature are now the only way of experiencing it? This exhibition is presented as an offering to aliens who visit us in the future. Instead of seeing nature in reality, this is what they encounter.ber
