She and the Sea... with two weeks to go!

24 May 2024

For me, the ocean is not just a subject of artistic inspiration; it is a source of solace and rejuvenation. Growing up near the coast, I have always felt a deep affinity with the sea, and my art reflects my reverence for its vastness and complexity. Through my work, I aim to convey both the breathtaking beauty of our oceans and the urgent need to protect them from the threats of pollution and climate change....

... World Ocean Day holds particular significance for me as it serves as a reminder of the critical role that each of us plays in safeguarding our marine ecosystems. This year's theme, "Catalysing Action for Our Ocean & Climate," resonates deeply with my artistic practice, inspiring me to use my creativity as a catalyst for positive change. By bringing together artists, community members, and environmental advocates, "She and the Sea" seeks to foster a sense of collective responsibility and empower individuals to take action in preserving our oceans for future generations....

.... As part of the exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to engage with an interactive art installation titled "My Sea Bed," which invites them to participate in beach clean-ups and contribute to a visual representation of marine pollution. Additionally, a talk by the regional voluntary group "Sussex Underwater" will shed light on the importance of marine conservation efforts and offer practical insights into protecting our local seas (tickets have now SOLD OUT!).
