Tamsin Relly

Tamsin Relly’s practice reflects the increasingly disrupted environmental conditions associated with a shifting global climate, and considers the erasure and construction of wilderness, whether for purposes of industry or leisure. Recent work explores the preservation of arboreal and botanical environments through conservation, remote green houses, and memory - be it personal, collective or held within the land.

Drawing on both found media imagery and first-hand observations, Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of her materials and processes to present impressions of natural and urban spaces in states of uncertainty or impermanence. As part of her research, she has visited and studied diverse locations such as Svalbard in the Arctic Circle, The Eden Project in Cornwall, and the fabricated oasis of the Las Vegas Strip.
