    Abstract

    JetsamThis exhibition is the culmination of three and half years of practice-based research examining the natural environment through physical and imagined encounters. Following John Ruskin’s proposed method of closely observing detail, Rohr’s work speaks of ecological responsibility as the drawings are intended to celebrate and mourn a vanishing world of natural diversity. The drawings’ overall intentions are to encourage a reconsideration of our relationship to the environment, promoting caretaking and respect.
