From our 2021 exhibition Graduates at SO.
Joanne Clerkin explores the human/nature relationship, particularly ‘biophilia’, and natures’ positive impact on the artist’s mental health. The idea that the more we connect with nature, the deeper our appreciation of it becomes, and the more we want to protect it. With the impending climate crisis, protecting it has become crucial. Clerkin’s work strives to inspire people to reconnect with the natural world, and in turn look after it.
