Adrian Berg presents an exhibition, the first of which is hoped to be a series of such ‘interventions’ at Gilbert White & The Oates Collections. This subtle and unostentatious painter, like the great naturalist, spent his entire adult life devoted to the single minded pursuit of opening our eyes to nature. White’s extreme attentiveness to his immediate surroundings and the close observation he practised when travelling are both paralleled by the work of this artist two centuries later. Like the scientific studies that White bequeathed to the world through his celebrated writings, Berg’s unapologetically beautiful paintings are the product of a highly systematic process, born of a reverence for nature and a consciousness of our place within it.
Berg’s work will be on display in the museum between the 18th May and the 12th July. The Exhibition is part to normal admission to the museum and gardens
