Borne out of conversations with nature Kathy Robins' practice seeks to map out a different mode of relating to the natural world that involves gentle listening and intimate connecting rather than domination. Re-tuning and re-turning to nature as our guide creates conditions for healing that are as important for our suffering planet as they are for the humans inhabiting it. A series of sculptures, works on paper, and installations, presented throughout the Creation Wines estate, will invite visitors to pause and consider the deep connections to the landscape around them. Taking inspiration from the imperceptible but often unrelenting power of nature, the artist explores how even small acts of conscious and respectful engagement with our environment can have the potential to generate change.
