International UK artist Marty St.James presents his unique artworks at the Blink Gallery in Hong Kong. Having recently returned from is second artist’s residency at the bottom of the world in Antarctia the artist will be showing new drawings and photgraphs and will be making a drawing installation ‘live’ in the gallery.

These ecological driven art works are based on the notion that there are many ways to see the world and locate our environment. The intention is build a visual metaphor to indicate how things can look if we re-position ourselves for just a short space and time.

We are under threat from ourselves. The way we see the world, the way we see our environment, the way we teach and what we teach needs adjustment. These new artworks based on the notion of mandalas explore the notion visually that our politics, economic systems and ways of seeing are quite literally upside down, back to front and and sending us in circles.


It is no longer a flat earth that we see and fear falling from. Its an upside down world, where our seeing and understanding has been distorted by economic politics which cause us not to see the ‘wood for trees’.

Leonardo De Vinci wrote backwards in a world that has developed a
‘rational’ to communicate only forwards. Translating the world as picture, as image upside down may yet enable new thinking and new visions about our environment, about our world.
