Featuring over 40 paintings by Norfolk-based artist Claire Cansick, the exhibition depicts a spectrum of climate-related catastrophes, including wildfires, floods, droughts, historic storms, snowfall, war, deforestation, erosion, the proliferation of tornadoes, and the alarming warming of the Arctic.

Each artwork tells a compelling story of nature’s relentless struggle against human actions and inactions.

‘You and I Are Earth’ is the culmination of a year-long project on global climate change weather events, a series of paintings based on the portrayal of these events through the TV news and social media.

Through her distinctive use of a limited color palette comprising just four hues, she unifies her diverse body of work, emphasizing the interconnectedness of these global issues.

This exhibition serves as a call to action, imploring us to re-evaluate our relationship with nature and to take immediate steps to mitigate the devastating effects of climate change before it’s too late.
