David Cass | Rising Horizon
A catalogue to accompany David Cass's exhibition, Rising Horizon.
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 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 exhibition promises to be both beautiful and poignant.
The catalogue features contributions by Professor David Reay of Edinburgh University and the oceanographer John Englander.
