12 products
Beyond The Window: An Exploration of Nature After Lockdown is an exhibition which collectively explores how we view and interpret the natural world around us, from the gardens in Nancy Collantine’s Secret Garden Series to the awe-inspiring vastness of outer space in Claire Lake’s Nebula Series, this exhibition explores how artists respond to and record the changing world around us.

While we have been confined to our homes during quarantine, the natural world outside has blossomed. This exhibition explores the ever-changing beauty of nature, each artist questioning the world around us and our place in it in their own unique way. Ranging from dramatic landscape painting and delicate glasswork to the intricate textile instillation of Vanessa Lam, Beyond The Window offers a snapshot of our engagement and connection with nature. 

Featured Artist

  • Kane Cunningham

    Kane Cunningham, our featured artist, is a landscape artist who engages with the politics of the landscape and the competing ideas of a contested space. However, his main concern is to explore watercolour painting as a contemporary medium and to highlight its historical significance within landscape painting. These expressive, energetic and engaging works challenge our ideas of contemporary landscape painting and its relevance today, they evoke a power reminiscent of JMW Turner who is an inspiration for Cunningham’s work. 

    The work encompassed within this exhibition aims to explore our wonderful world through a number of mediums and works encouraging our visitors to ask their own questions about the world around them, the beauty and splendour of nature and our place within it as we re-engage with the world around us.
