Seascapes 14th May - 17th July 2020

Ellie Davies is a fine art photographer (LCC MA graduate, 2008) who has been working in the forests of the UK for the past ten years, producing work which explores the complex interrelationship between the landscape and the individual.

In her new series ‘Seascapes’ (2020), Ellie continues her long preoccupation with the woodland, this time combined with mesmerising images of the sea to offer a personal commentary on the threat of rising water levels in her beloved New Forest and a mediation on her relationship with the woods themselves intrinsically linked to a nostalgia for her childhood spent there.

Seascapes, 2020

I began this series of images considering the rising sea levels and worsening flooding that takes place every winter in the area I grew up in, the New Forest, in the South of England.

I wanted Seascapes to speak about change, loss of control, the unknown. In some images the water that flows across dusk-darkened woodlands is ruptured by roiling currents, rushing inland. In others the forest is virtually obscured by bubbling waters. 

This alluring, sparkling insurgency is altogether darker and more dangerous; reflected light captured from the surface of the sea now appears in forest spaces where it was never meant to be.

As often happens when creating a body of work, it soon finds its own agenda, its own voice. Seascapes began as a personal meditation on climate change but my relationship to the landscape, especially woodland, is intrinsically connected with my relationship with my twin sister. We grew up together in the New Forest and these formative years have shaped my understanding of, and involvement with, all forests, so much so that it is impossible for me to separate the two.
