Portrait of Joseph Fourier - Louis-Léopold Boilly, early 19th century, source, and cartoon showing Greta Thunberg, circulating on social media in 2019.
We are a group of artists and arts promoters who recognize the potential existential threat of global warming and are determined to use the arts to communicate our concerns to our audiences.
Our art exhibitions emerge from the conceptual basis of Marcus Vergette's Time and Tide Bells, stimulating conversations about human relationships with the sea, past, present and future, mindful of the global warming and the social stresses that climate change and sea level rise may bring.
This project attempts to record through portraiture the key players in our understanding of global warming, the scientists, campaigners and politicians who should be hounoured as heroes of our time.
If you would like to be involved in this project send us an email. Pick somebody you regard as a significant figure in the field and paint (carve, sculpt or whaterver) a portrait. Take a photograph of your artwork and write a brief biography and we'll post it on this website. In due course we will gather everybody's works together and hold an exhibition and publish a book. There's no date fixed, no deadline set, this will happen in its own time, probably early 2020, but do get started.

The project was about the people connected to two nature reserves. Farr Ings and Blacktoft Sands, are areas that are both dependant on sea levels and the stability of the environment. I created two portraits of wardens involved within these areas.
