Artists included in this exhibition take their subjects from the natural world. Like artists throughout

history, they find inspiration in the richness, diversity, and symbolic potential of plants and animals.

However, the work of these artists showcases a darker side of nature, by highlighting the increasing

control exerted by humans, with a particular emphasis on the negative aspects of our interference.

The resulting works encourage us to consider our own relationship with the natural world and to

ponder the potential implications of our recent explorations into genetic testing and cloning
