Senedd Welsh Parliament 2024

Mike Perry’s contemporary landscape photography opens our eyes to the conflict between human activities and the urgent need to tackle our environmental problems.

In these times of climate emergency and biodiversity loss, the artist’s work asks us to change our relationship with the natural world. Instead of melting icecaps and burning rainforests, the artist focuses our attention on the environmental crisis at home.

Land/Sea brings together two ongoing bodies of work that have been touring Wales and internationally for a number of years.

In the ‘Land’ works_ the artist focuses on places commonly called ‘areas of natural beauty’. Capturing settings like our national parks, Perry uses the artwork to explore man’s impact on these spaces. Môr Plastig (Welsh for ‘plastic sea’) is a body of work that classifies objects washed up by the sea into three groupings: bottles, shoes and grids. Perry uses a high-resolution camera to capture the intriguing surface detail found on each object.

The artist lives and works in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales.
