ADDY GARDNER’s work explores her thoughts, feelings and emotions in relation to ‘wildness’ in the world and primarily in Britain. Her work seeks to investigate ecology politics and translate sentiments surrounding themes such as land rights, right to roam, farming and regeneration: the main focus being the intersection between wild spaces and human made environments and the exploitation, extraction and desecration of ‘wild’ in these areas. Her inspiration largely stems from literature on the biodiversity and climate crises. Gardner primarily uses a mixed media approach and focuses on abstracted representations of landscape. She works mainly with oils, incorporating collage material largely taken from book pages, her childrens drawings, maps and printed plant patterns.
Addy Gardner’s work has been shown, and is held in private collections, in the UK and internationally.
