Five artists consider island life as their subject, whether it be through a more conceptual investigation of the memory of place or an overtly literal representation of landscape. The work references islands around the globe from Pangkor Laut Island, Malaysia, to the Caribbean islands off the Gulf of Mexico, and many in between.

Exhibition curated by Katherine Jones
The Terrarium Drawn explores the evolution of environments, both natural and fabricated, global and domestic. All five artists use drawing as a fundamental part of their practice in order to grasp an idea and to explore its development.
Lucy Bainbridge depicts manmade environments in constant flux, while Tamsin Relly draws from her first-hand experience of ‘wilderness, erased or constructed for industry or leisure’ during recent research trips to the Arctic Circle and Las Vegas. Michael Taylor uses ‘a process of layered construction’ to attempt an understanding of how an image derives its meaning. Hen Coleman examines contrasts in ‘the terrain of chaotic and abundant nature’ as the basis for exploration.
The artists have been drawn together for this exhibition by Katherine Jones, an artist whose own work shares common themes with each. Her recent images reflect the gradual integration of unfamiliar plants, adapting to environmental and atmospheric changes, renewing the balance and diversity of domestic flora and fauna.
