In the mail today: Wildside – The Enchanted Life of Hunters and Gatherers

Selections from Canadian artist David Ellingsen project The Last Stand appear in the new release from Gestalten Wildside The Secret Life of Hunters and Gatherers



Along with work and stories from a host of artists working out on the land, I’m happy to have selections from The Last Stand appear in this lovely new book Wildside – The Enchanted Life of Hunters and Gatherers, compiled and edited by Germany’s Gestalten.

Wildside captures the layers and rhythms of a life that does not yield to nature, but that coexists within it’s verdant realm.”

2016 Weather Patterns The Hottest Year on Record (to date)


2016 The Hottest Year on Record (to date)
Edition of 5
Pigment ink on cotton rag
40×50 inches


Today The Guardian and The New York Times both released articles confirming 2016 as the hottest year ever on record.

“Marking another milestone for a changing planet, scientists reported on Wednesday that the Earth reached its highest temperature on record in 2016 — trouncing a record set only a year earlier, which beat one set in 2014. It is the first time in the modern era of global warming data that temperatures have blown past the previous record three years in a row.”

Advance press for upcoming exhibition ‘The Sublunary World’ at London’s Baldwin Gallery

The Sublunary World at London's Baldwin Gallery


The UK’s Country & Town House magazine profiles The Baldwin Gallery in their cultural guide to January.

Dennison Smith spent time living with the Navajo tribe in North America and was inspired by their understanding of art as part of our personal and geographical identity – not merely as a commodity. On her return to London she opened the doors of her Blackheath home as a gallery space to display contemporary indigenous North American art and draw parallels with European artists. The Baldwin Gallery kicks off 2017 with a comparison of Tim Shaw’s Middle World figures and the sculptural photographs of two Canadians – David Ellingsen and Meryl McMaster.
