Artist Marcus Bowcott's works combine his landscape painting roots, sculpture, and a good measure of irony and humor. In his works, you'll find reflections of our society's often contradictory relationship with our natural environment. In this Artist To Artist video, he shares with us his thoughts of our theme of the month, "A Greener Practice."
LIVING A GREENER PRACTICE
Artists have long been fascinated by and respectful of the planet we inhabit. Through the creative process, we have the power to promote environmentalism and make green initiatives a priority in cultural conversations. This April, we're diving into the myriad ways that artists can forge meaningful connections with nature and integrate sustainable practices into their artistic pursuits, while exploring diverse perspectives on the interplay between art and environmentalism. How does a connection to nature influence our work? What sustainable practices can we incorporate into our creative process? How can we use our platform as artists to promote environmentalism and inspire others to prioritise sustainability in their work and daily lives?
