'Gray and Healy have known each other for most of Healy’s life. They collaborated on a stained glass window for
Clackmannanshire Council in 2009, (which has mysteriously
disappeared!).

Gray & Healy have never exhibited their artwork together in an exhibition, before now. Through Healy’s connection with the Butterfly Conservation, they visited the developing
wildflower meadow in Pollock Park, Glasgow in 2017.
Following a day planting seeds and plants for the planned urban meadow in Pollock Park, it led to discussions
regarding the developing wildflower meadow to encourage
biodiversity and to also highlight the work being done at Pollock Park and in other urban environments.

The Biodiversity project will develop over the forthcoming months with exhibitions, talks and outreach projects to create a platform for discussion surrounding Biodiversity in the urban environment.'

“The intention of the Biodiversity project is to research and highlight biodiversity projects by shining a light on various projects and
being inspired by them. I am developing new work based on this research during an artist residency at Edinburgh College of Art/
Edinburgh University” - Siobhan Healy

“The Omnium Gatherum print represents two opposed human
attitudes, the selfish, greedy and imperial: the loving,
co-operative and socialist. Every viewer will choose which they prefer. I am sure biodiversity depends on the second.” - Alasdair Gray
