exhibition: 'rod billington, a light exists in spring' - weavers factory

Landscape artist Rod Billington explores the fragile relationship between nature and the built environment. Will our rampant love of consumerism be our downfall, or will the next generation bring light and hope?

“I’ve always been fascinated by how the built environment relates to nature and how despite our best efforts, nature always finds a way to become an integral part of what we create. We find this in a lot of imagery, where man’s transient journey through this life is wiped out and cleaned away, all evidence of where we’ve been, gone in a flash. "
