My particular concern is with existential questions about the nature of reality. At a macro level this involves the relationship with my community and immediate environment and in particular the natural environment. At a micro level there is the more important metaphysical question of existence and my relationship to the formless energetic layers of reality. Both perspectives shape the choice of projects and the creation of artwork, including concepts, aesthetics, and the use of materials. ”
Jill Chism

NorthSite presents Call of the Running Tide a sculpture and multimedia group exhibition, responding to the real and dire circumstances that humanity faces due to escalating ecological and climate change.

 

Extending their art practice, both conceptually and aesthetically, artists have drawn on a wide range of processes and a variety of media to communicate their concerns.

 

The works of art invite us to develop our deeper connections with the natural world; they urge us to galvanise and transform the ways we regard our planet and implore us to bring about changes for the better: the works are a call to action.

 

Artists showing at NorthSite; Jill Chism, Rosey Cummings, Ross Cummings, Susan Doherty, Barbara Dover, Tim Ellis, Ashley Holmes, Mollie Bosworth, Klara Royster, Suzannah Babicci, Andrea Collisson, Barbara Dover, Leanne Emmit, Victoria Park, Lynette Griffiths and Marion Gaemers. Artists showing online; Wendy Wagner, Robyn Glade-Wright and Tanya Chapman.

 

 ‘Call of the Running Tide’ is an excerpt from John Masefield’s 1902 poem ‘Sea Fever’. A poem of musicality, that sings to connection of a sailor to the wild sea.
