Just after COP26 the feeling now more than ever is one of impatience, that we are heading for disaster and cannot see the actions needed for preventing global warming, species loss and catastrophic weather events. Such a large global issue that affects everyone in the world can often feel too large to contemplate; This exhibition pulls focus to the impact of climate change to species and habitats in the UK. Each of the seven exhibiting artists has examined aspects of nature and wildlife affected by climate change and used the visual to give a face to this issue that seems too big to see, yet is staring us in the face.
Dot-Art Director Lucy Byrne said: “Species loss is a key issue in the climate agenda. Nature and climate are interlinked: climate change is one of the greatest threats to the natural world but restoring nature can tackle climate change by locking away carbon in healthy ecosystems. At dot-art we are committed to tackling the issues around sustainability and climate change in creative and innovative ways, demonstrating the power of art to stimulate debate and action. On The Brink follows on from our climate focused projects in 2021, Heavy Gardening and the Wild Walls Mural, and 2022 will also see the further development of the Tree Stories project.”
