New work inspired by walks in the Sussex wetlands

The wetlands of Bulverhythe

An enchanting experience – tall tall reeds blond rustling.

 

Swaying whispering endlessly a soothing sound, but a dangerous place too.

 

What is it like….to visit at night with just rustling, dry movement, secret eternal ongoing, a moon shining in a jet black void of sky with ghostly wrathes of reed, glints of water, mask marsh and swamp, don’t stray from the path – take no risk, you are the intruder here.

 

What is it like…. to visit day or night in a ferocious gale, lashing into whiplash howls instead of whispers. Threat and fear your walking stalking companion.

A Colourful and Seasonal review of 2011

I’ve made a page of the work I did in 2011, some of which is still developing and will be seen again, changed, in 2012

Please see the page of work HERE.

There & Then; Here & Now

 

I have a new studio in Marina on the seafront in St Leonards, and an exhibition at Hastings Arts Forum, just round the corner.

Let me know if you want to visit the studio as well.
