‘ To bee 🐝 better at looking after the small things; Then we can save the the things that matter’Rachel Toll Watercolours by Rachel adding her #fingerprint to #spottimespottime #alllife #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage #transcendingdifference www.watercoloursbyrachel.co.ukMy name is Rachel Toll and I am a watercolour artist based in Devon, England. I love painting and gain much inspiration from the landscapes, wildlife and coasts of Devon and Cornwall.Wildlife painting has become a major part of who I am. I strive to capture the essence of the subjects I paint and the eyes of the animal hold a special place in the painting. Once I have the eyes I like to work loosely, leaving much to the viewer's imagination. If people like what I have painted then that makes me very happy.I also take on commissions and these have presented me with lots of new and unexpected challenges.

“Effective wildlife artivism makes the experience of addressing difficult subjects more palatable, but without compromising on sincerity.” Mart Aveling @avelingartworks adding his #fingerprint to #spottimespottime & #pawprint from Jack 🙂 🐾 #sittingequally #conservationmeanslife #alllife avelingartworks.com #wildlifeartivism Martin Aveling's passion for drawing was born out of his surroundings at a very young age. While his parents were working to protect mountain gorillas on the steep forested slopes of the Virunga volcanoes, Martin picked up pencils and drew them.After graduating from the University of Bristol, Mart built his career around his primary passion for art and the natural world. He has exhibited many times in London with the Society of Wildlife Artists and at the DSWF ‘Wildlife Artist of the Year’ award, for which he has been a finalist the past thirteen years, and highly commended on four occasions.Mart is a partner artist of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and a signature member of Artists For Conservation. In 2021 he won the first ever ‘David Shepherd Art of Survival Award’. Mart has been instrumental in exploring the world of wildlife artivism and its role in environmental storytelling. “Wildlife Artivism is a growing trend in conservation, where elements of fantasy are combined with reality to unearth hidden truths. It tackles the big issues faced by our planet and its wildlife through storytelling embedded in art.” In 2020 Mart established the ‘Ingrid Beazley Award’ - A £5,000 grant designed to help wildlife, stimulate creativity and provide assistance for people suffering with eco-anxiety. Mart is a global ambassador for Derwent Pencils and provided the artwork for their current Pastel Pencil range (his favoured medium for over 20 years). His clean and contemporary style celebrates the detail in his animal subjects, and negative space is manipulated to give them environments. Mart aims to raise the profile of all wildlife around the world and to generate support for its most vulnerable. From the sale of his art, Mart has helped raise nearly £50,000 for various wildlife conservation charities. ... See MoreSee Less

“If I had one wish for the world, it would be that we stop harming all animals. They deserve our protection, not our abuse.

I post thís again today with huge honour to celebrate having this inspiring artist #kenloach on #spottimespottime As a child growing up in a #shipbuilding #workingclass town #barrowinfurness in the ‘70’ s Ken Loach and films like #kez inspired hope and a belief that one day I too and many my age could have an education and aspire to contribute to society with a free a valued voice. It was a relief to see a truthful creative expression. As a mother I proudly showed my baby daughter ( 18 yrs ago) a hand print in the pavement at Cannes saying proudly ‘ with art and respect made by this artist - you will have a global freedom’ . As I read the papers over the last few days I made a vow to myself to honour brave artists and keep trying to transcend difference - so we are able to work together towards an enlightened society and respect and love the #environment and #planet we inhabit. Democracy is a pathway we should always tender and I believe it is important to listen with a hopeful and forgiving #heart. I salute you #KenLoach @kenloach_sixteen and I am beyond proud you launched the #artaunifyinglanguage section of #spottimespottime #artists #actors #love #life 12th November 2019It is with great honour that I launch this new panel for everyone who who work in the arts.‘ This is a fist- because we cannot have unity until we resolve conflict between class interests and stop the oppression , exploitation and all the destruction of the environment that conflict brings’ Ken Loach Launching ‘ ART - A Unifying Language’ A panel as part of the SPOTtimespotTIME emerging nationwide art artwork #fingerprintofunity.#artaunifyinglanguage #alllife #conservationmeanslife #sittingequally #respect #difnity #art #freedomanddemocracy ...

‘ Just learn to let go’ Jason Emrich, The Estate Manager at Knepp who helped Sir Charles Burrell an Isabella Tree kick off the whole rewilding thing twenty years ago at Knepp Castle Estate knepp.co.uk/home @kneppsafaris adding his #fingerprint to #spottimespottime #workingtogether #sittingequally #alllife #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife Knepp is a 3,500 acre estate just south of Horsham, West Sussex. Since 2001, the land – once intensively farmed - has been devoted to a pioneering rewilding project. Using grazing animals as the drivers of habitat creation, and with the restoration of dynamic, natural water courses, the project has seen extraordinary increases in wildlife. Extremely rare species like turtle doves, nightingales, peregrine falcons and purple emperor butterflies are now breeding here; and populations of more common species are rocketing.The vision of the Knepp Wildland Project is radically different to conventional nature conservation in that it is not driven by specific goals or target species. Instead, its driving principle is to establish a functioning ecosystem where nature is given as much freedom as possible. The aim is to show how a ‘process-led’ approach can be a highly effective, low-cost method of ecological restoration - suitable for failing or abandoned farmland - that can work to support established nature reserves and wildlife sites, helping to provide the webbing that will one day connect them together on a landscape scale. #kneppestate #rewilding #kneppwildland #kneppcastleestate #knepprewilding #conservation #life #lovealllife ...

‘ We can do it ‘ Sir Charles Burrell, 10th Baronet adding his #fingerprint to #spottimespottime #workingtogether #sittingequally #conservationmeanslife #alllife #artaunifyinglanguage Owner of Knepp Castle, a 3,500 acre estate that has been in the Burrell family for 220 years, Charlie is the inspiration behind the Knepp Wildland Project.Having run Knepp Home Farm for 20 years, Charlie had a dramatic change of heart after a visit to the Oostvaardersplassen project in Holland in the 1990s and saw the potential for a similar "rewilding" project at home in Sussex.Charlie is chair of the Romanian rewilding project, Foundation Conservation Carpathia, and is on the board of Rewilding Britain, The Arcadia Fund, Ingleby Farms Environment Committee, the Endangered Landscapes Programme and the Bronze Oak Project.Knepp is on heavy clay, and it’s always been a struggle to farm here. With the rewilding project we’re still raising cattle and livestock, only now it’s extensive rather than intensive farming – more like ranching, really – and the animals are driving the great positives like biodiversity, habitat and soil restoration. Because we have no goals or targets, and the project is ‘process-led’, Nature is teaching us. We’re on a thrilling journey. The possibilities are endless, and the relevance to conservation and eco-systems services has never been greater. #kneppestate #kneppwildland #rewilding #connection #ecosystems #biodiversity #isabellatree ...

Recently @nessofbrodgar was in various media articles/press because they had uncovered a 5000 year old fingerprint on a piece of pot. Incredible! As a team of archaeologists and volunteers - Nick Card (seen here in the photo ) is the site/ project Director -discovering the fingerprint is only the tip of the iceberg as at @nessofbrodgar there are daily discoveries and finds of huge historical significance which will change and inform our understanding of Neolithic and Mesolithic activity and community. I wanted to visit the site and document this incredible unearthing and the team responsible and incorporate as part of SPOTtimespotTIME art social document. Time concepts, event and story all sitting together on one artwork informing and sharing. What was already a huge honour to have such amazing access to the team, at such a small window of excavation activity in Orkney due to weather conditions, light and team agreement - Nick Card said they had recently found another fingerprint sample in Structure 8 and would I like to see the fingerprint? These photos document the event that on the 13th July 2021 SPOTtimspotTIME had the honour to have a fingerprint 5000 years old on the conservation part of the work. Added to the panel all the fingerprints gathered during lockdown and also today via post and future conservation events will sit on this part of the work. I found this moment incredibly humbling and shall cherish always the significance of reaching across time. ( The photo with the fingerprint work sat on tyres is the protected structure 8 area where the second fingerprint was found) www.nessofbrodgar.co.uk/ #orkney #archeology #scottishhighlands #britisharchaeology #scottishdig #megalithic #orkneyislands #nessofbrodgarasitstands #nessofbrodgarexcavation #excavation #touchingtime #onespecies #spottimespottime #alllife #sittingequally #artaunifyinglanguage ...
