  • About this print

    The choice of subject matter for the print was inspired by trips rockpooling with Jake, my grandson, searching for but never finding the elusive star fish.

    Marine ecosystems are being impacted by both global warming and the increase of plastics in the ocean. Limpets, star fish, anemones, barnacles, mussels and seaweed are important to help ecosystems survive global warming. Losing these species can destabilise ecosystems. Seaweed cleans coastal waters by removing excess nutrients and absorbs carbon dioxide from the water protecting shelled animals from ocean acidification.

  • Endless Forms, Most Beautiful

    A new bestiary and herbarium for at risk species by artists from Northern Print.

    “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to support visits, new printmaking and school’s programme for this project.

    Northern Print artists bring together traditional printmaking and the natural world with a series of new prints highlighting the diversity of species that are categorised as ‘at risk’.

    The ‘endless forms’ include marine life; plants; birds; insects and mammals with many familiar and much-loved species as well as less known and intriguing creatures that have captured the imagination and hearts of Northern Print’s artists.

    This exhibition of 45 new prints has been made following a series of visits to our region’s natural history collections and habitats and represents the tiniest tip of the iceberg of our natural world under threat.

    The artwork includes a range of approaches and printmaking processes – including heritage craft skills also deemed at risk including letterpress and mould-made papers
