Description

"Light on Shadow seeks to highlight the struggle that sits at the very heart of his fine art practice. Together with the Blue Sphere Foundation he founded; the exhibition is an intimate journey through the reality of marine life under threat. Curated by Matthew Hockley Smith, the show is a powerful warning against complacency.

“Art is my passion, conservation is my purpose, and for me the two are inseparable. I have found art is the most powerful tool I can contribute to help protect the ocean’s most threatened species and habitats.” – Shawn Heinrichs
