Making Your Mark

Drawing is taking a line for a walk.

The marks we make are a metaphysical presence of the then and now. Marks convey the journey that, we make a visual evidence of our experiences. We are made aware, we look, we discover and record. The marks we make and the marks we leave behind are a visual history book.

Man has always had the under denying need to make their mark.  The necessity to draw, the physical action made for pleasure, adornment and to record, a visual diary of everyday life. Your mark is your own DNA, the visual dialogue as unique as your own hand writing. This visual narrative 

conveys emotions through the energy f the drawn line. Scratching, scoring, collage, stich and disintegration  all reflect the relentlessness of the elements and their own physical presence.

Coastline

Working across many disciplines and medias the coastline provides a myriad  of art and design inspiration.

Colour, textures and form  inform the art work. Patterning's made by the sea, ebbing and flowing  rivulets constantly changing  with each new  mark making  tide.

The work emulates an emotional response to the shoreline creating a visual dialogue.  The narrative conveyed through softly  muted imagery, impressionistic  and a with  metaphysical response to the subject.

Monuments in Time

Sitting within our landscape are an array of manmade monuments.  Often beautiful, they offer historic reference, cultural identity, spiritual comfort and can be controversial.

This collection focuses on two areas of interest. Firstly, Standing Stones, these ancient monuments are imposing forms, offering mythical intrigue and wonderment on how they were constructed.  

Secondly, built by St David, the Patron Saint of Wales, St David’s Cathedral, a site of pilgrimage. Its  dominant physicality a testament to the landscape in which it sits. 

 

 As artists we leave our own monuments. Paintings, architecture, sculpture and design become our futures history, the art gallery a shrine of all it contains. They will be the enduring tribute to the past, our heritage.
