 “Under the Skin” presents the work of two young artists and brothers, James and Ed Harrison. They create fine art prints to support the conservation of endangered species. Each print focuses on an endangered animal and is developed in association with a charity involved in its conservation. The aim is to raise funds, as well as awareness, and 20% of the proceed from the sale of the prints go to the charity partner. The prints are hand-made screen-prints with layers of colour that result in bold and joyous designs. However, the seriousness of their message is delivered with a punch: when a UV light is shone on the print, the skeleton of the animal is revealed. “Under the Skin” is a small exhibition presenting around 20 of these interactive prints and visitors will be handed UV torches to appreciate the prints to the full.
