Biography

Adele is a multi-disciplinary environmental artist and PhD researcher interested in the interrelationships between people, places, culture and nature.  Through her work Adele hopes to deepen connections between people and the natural world. 

 

Much of her recent work has focused on Antarctica, inspired by the continent's cultural, geopolitical, and natural environments. Increasingly, natural forces are a vital and active part of Adele's creative process. In Antarctic Sun Lines the sun and the tilted rotation of the Earth are active agents in producing the images.
