Rising Horizon30 Jan 2019 - 23 Feb 2019
In this new body of work David Cass explores the abstract notion of a rising horizon, using beautifully painted seascapes as vehicles to explore themes of global warming and sea rise. Paintings appear on diverse surfaces such as metal signs, antique tins, a copper boiler and re-formed plastic-waste panels (commissioned by the artist, containing thousands of compressed items of plastic food and drink waste packaging). The catalogue features contributions by Professor David Reay of Edinburgh University and the oceanographer John Englander.
David Cass was joined by Professor Dave Reay from The University of Edinburgh on Saturday 9th February 2019, to discuss the environmental issues portrayed through the seascapes. This talk was recorded and the video will be available to view on our YouTube Channel shortly.
