18th October Artist Talk
JOSHUA YELDHAM & MIA DALBY-BALL
TITLE: SALT MARCHES AND STORIES
Sunlight plays on the water and dances on the undersides of the Mangrove
leaves. Cool mud in our toes and that smell of salt-air mixed with deep Earth. Join us here, where life abounds, for a synthesis of facts on Mangroves and Saltmarsh from Mia Dalby-Ball and awakening through Joshua Yeldham vision of the mangrove as a symbolic process of nature’s supreme technologies - filtering out redundant elements to drink vitality / absorbing our life’s nutrients to taste our full potential.
Artist and author Joshua Yeldham believes that love for oneself activates nature’s charm, and that the language of creativity can encourage us all to interrupt the daily repetition of life’s storyline. Drawing from a reverential love of nature and deep spiritual affiliation with the land, Joshua Yeldham creates intricately rendered works that oscillate between narrative and myth, imagination and real experience.
Urban Ecology is Mia Dalby-Ball’s area and the focus is on the care, restoration and assisted re-creation of natural systems. A wetland and estuary expert, promoter of urban butterfly birthplaces, Mia’s projects aim to facilitate people’s appreciation of nature so we can celebrate what is here and see it into the future.
