The artists in Neo Naturalist have found ways to reconnect to a part of nature that for them provides endless interest and inspiration. As nature changes to adapt to present stresses, these artist are also adapting to view their creations in a new way. Not only creating artworks to show respect for their subject, they feel a need to address issues of growth, change and loss. Working with this group of artists has reminded me that change is constant, and adaptions and reactions to change is what we, as well as nature, have been doing for millennia.
