Seeking

I seem to  always have a question with each work -- whatever the medium. I seem to be always seeking.





 Seeking the next step.
 Seeking the way forward.

Coastal Erosion

Constant hydraulic action on the cliffs creates the conditions for erosion caused by the attrition of soil and rocks. Trees teeter on the edge only to fall in the next storm.

 

The coastline, eroded by waves and weather gives way to these forces of time and tide.

Three Islands Triptych

The central panel of this triptych seeks to capture the same three rivers at the mouth of the Hillsborough Harbour that I saw in "The South Shore". 


Quite by accident the panel on the right expands the shore.


Quite by design the panel on the left extends the harbour and changes the perspective.


No longer does it reflect one harbour or one shore but translates into a unique place of sky and light, water and land.


Each carries its own composition, but give them one wall together and they enter into their own sphere.
