SuperNature was an exhibition at 'View' in Bristol's harbourside, that followed barely a month after the NSA show of predominantly Cornwall-based artists at the RWA. Curated by Jesse Leroy Smith, an artist also working in Cornwall, it comprised 11 contemporary artists that, between them, demonstrate a range of old and new approaches to what might be called 'the landscape genre'. Many had been involved in 'Revolver', the mammoth and influential Penzance-based exhibition and book of 2007, and spin-off shows like 'Solarize' that followed swiftly afterwards.
