Tamsin Relly

Relly’s practice reflects on the increasingly disrupted weather conditions of a shifting global climate and explores notions of wilderness, erased or constructed for industry or leisure.

Drawing reference material from both found media imagery and first hand observations, Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of painting and printmaking to present impressions of urban and natural environments in states of uncertainty or impermanence.

Research includes visiting and studying diverse locations such as receding glaciers in Svalbard in the Arctic Circle; displaced wildlife in zoos; and the fabricated oasis of Las Vegas and depletion of its surrounding water sources.
