Petrichor (noun):

A pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

Since the Stone Age, our relationship to the natural world has been explored through art, helping us to connect with our surroundings and inspire creativity. Today, however, it is increasingly  complex, with the climate emergency impacting us all, some artists have decided to use their art to voice concern. Others have used their work to emphasise the connection and admiration for the world around us. Petrichor presents a selection of work by a group of contemporary artists who invite us to consider our relationship to nature in new and emboldening ways.
