‘Palaeontology is a Dangerous Beast’ Adam White Exhibition

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - Sunday, June 25, 2017

Adam White interrogates geology through a series of giant experimental watercolours and votive objects that address the vital human concerns of our origins, hidden mythologies of the present day, how and why we think, the mystery of life and death, and the wilful blurring of belief and science.

Exhibits include ‘Petrifaction by Numbers’, a giant geological map of the British Isles made from crushed rock pigments; ‘The Vertebrae and the Spineless Wonder’, transparent dinosaur bones turned into votive objects which carry human stories marooned inside them, and ‘The Ichthyosaur’, a 195-million-year-old Jurassic Ichthyosaur found by the artist in Gloucestershire. It is the most complete ichthyosaur currently known in the county.

The artist will be at the gallery every Sunday afternoon between 2pm and 4pm.

Time: 11:00
