Migrations | A Field Study of Adversity

Date: 5 September - 31 October 2020
Meffan Museum, Forfar

Wildlife artist, Derek Robertson, realised that the routes of birds and refugees often followed close parallels. He travelled through Europe to the Middle East, sketching and volunteering.  This series of paintings draws together topics of refugee crises and climate change, depicting birds as environmental indicators and as metaphors for people.
