It is Not Down in Any Map; True Places Never Are is a new solo exhibition by Jarrad Martyn of a series of paintings and drawings which explore humanity’s relationship with the natural environment. The process of bricolage, (something constructed from a diverse range of things) is used to collate academic research and the associated imagery to create an alternate conversation. The contrasting motifs are used to explore the relationship between industry and the environment, species hierarchy, as well as the conservation function of zoos. Conversely, some works also tell a universal story that aims to unite humanity, while also suggesting what (if anything) the act of painting can offer to environmental conversation.
