About the event

Ian uses the mythical sea god, Neptune, and the earth goddess, Gaia to illustrate nature's response to the destructive invasion of plastic in their precious worlds.  The exhibition features a series of dramatic and beautifully styled photographs of Gaia and Neptune taken on location on Portland. A 3D piece further highlights the contrast between the natural and the man made with original paintings.
