"Our waterways are the litmus indicators of our global wellbeing. They reflect the state of our environment as we traverse their embankments, as we row upon them, as we drive over them, as we picnic and sketch by their shores. We are forewarned.
They are usually generous and sometimes lethal – often beautiful but occasionally, terrifying. They are forever necessary.
This exhibition is an homage to the River – in all its abundance, teeming with the life and energy of millennia. I have attempted to imbue into my drawings and paintings, a sense of portent, of celebration, and of respect" - Kerry McInnis.
