MARY HURST - Algarve From Land & sea (Door)The AAN artists are celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2016. With their new exhibition they wish to draw attention to nature which transforms itself constantly and is transformed by man’s intervention, to emphasize their concern with negative consequences of human action, and to focus on the enormous actual and potential impact that exploration of oil and gas within sight of the Algarve shoreline and its Natural Reserves.

We as artists are influenced by nature that surrounds us; the luminosity of light that emphasizes the colours of the sky and sea; the sheer beauty of the landscape with the mountains guarding the horizon in the north, the blue vastness of the ocean and its marine, life, the pulse of life at the local markets, the noise, the atmosphere, the smells and the colours, all have their place in our work. But there is another aspect to nature here in the Algarve.
Humankind is prey to the need for her natural resources and there are negative consequences of human action to obtain them. Overfishing, pollution of the ocean and the golden beaches are environmental issues that will transform and could destroy the nature of the Algarve for us now and for future generations."
