The work that is on display has been publicly exhibited for the first time and drawn entirely from private collectors in Hampshire.

Infinite Beauty investigates the enduring appeal of nature as a subject for leading contemporary artists, exploring the way in which they interact with natural forms – plants, animals, habitats and the wider landscape – and how their work comments on the ways human activity impacts the environment around us.

The exhibition will feature an eclectic mixture of media, style and approaches, with photography, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture helping us to look at our relationship with nature afresh.

Works by leading artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Chris Drury, Elisabeth Frink, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Maggi Hambling, Richard Long, Juliette Losq, Darren Almond and Dan Holdsworth will take visitors from familiar everyday experiences to the ends of the earth among the ice and snow of Antarctica.

Curator Steve Marshall says: “We have been fortunate to draw together this unique exhibition through the generosity of a group of Hampshire-based collectors. Infinite Beauty showcases many remarkable works rarely seen in public. Through the imaginations of these artists we can look afresh at the amazing variety and beauty that nature provides, while marvelling at human creativity. Hopefully visitors will take away a message of hope from this inspirational combination.”
