Part of the #Scapa100 commemorations the exhibition by artist Caroline Appleyard and photographer Marjo Tynkkynen, included photographs, paintings and resin based sculpture.

The stunning underwater photographs of parts of the sunken  German High Seas Fleet lying in Scapa Flow were taken over a 4 year period from 2014 – 2018.

The resin 3D art works reflect what we are currently doing to our seas with plastic pollution, ‘Teenage Mutant Fag-End Turtle’ and ‘Ghost Fishing’.

The different media used produced a contrasting exhibition of muted underwater photographs of decaying wrecks now hosting marine life and the bright colours of resin 3D art.
