Ade’s work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology, the study of the relationships between living things and their surroundings. His main fascination is how the human footprint is affecting our planet. He highlights the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, energy consumption and endangered wild species, bringing his influences from travel and current affairs.

Decline is a comment on the disappearance of the majestic and slow growing Baobab trees as a result of unsustainable logging. The trees seem to act as buffers between the restless, troubled sky and the ground. What will happen when they have all gone?

Ade Adesina was the winner of the Art in Healthcare Purchase Prize, RSA New Contemporaries Exhibition 2013.
