Dale Marshall: Coast to Coast
Currently in the process of relocating from Wales to Ireland, philanthropic contemporary artist Dale vN Marshall has donated a trio of colourful canvases to local initiative Sector39 to thank the community from which he has drawn inspiration from whilst based here.
Funds from the sale of the works belonging to Marshall’s 2012 Coast to Coast series will be directed to create opportunities in permaculture education; ( Permaculture being ‘a design system that models on nature itself to build resilient and regenerative systems for food, housing, energy and meaningful work’)
Ideologies align between Marshall and the environmental initiative, with both looking to understand the chaos of modern life by channeling ‘fears and concerns for the future into positive and meaningful action’. The artist comments ‘I want to support permaculture with my art, thinking about the environment in this way has inspired me to begin a new phase of my own work’ - watch this space!
