About this event

“Human courage and endurance have conquered – the explorer must change his methods” Roy Chapman Andrews.

Survey into the Cretaceous is a journey into the painter’s imagination.

The painter has imagined himself as being an assigned artist with a team of palaeontologists, scientists and geographers on a survey expedition into the late Cretaceous period. His brief is to record the fauna and express the experience through an artist’s eye. A broad cross–section of species is represented, some now extinct, some still extant today.

Boundaries of reality are not of relevance. Barriers between disciplines blurred, this is an act of imagination, the work presented being the product of the journey, tangible evidence of an impossible story.

The analogy of the journey is paramount. As with each individual’s human journey, it is a journey of struggle, learning, growth and, ultimately, evolution and, perhaps, transcendence.
