The Deep’s 3rd floor gallery will play home to a thought provoking series of artworks from six artists in 2017, all with a marine theme.

Haeckel was a German Biologist, Naturalist and Artist who discovered and named thousands of new species. In 1899 he began to publish a series of extraordinary images that changed the way we viewed the relationship between Art and Science.

100 of his images were put together to create 10 volumes of Art Forms of Nature. Many of the organisms included within these collections were first described and classified by Haeckel himself. This stunning combination remains, to this day, an astounding record of life on earth.
