‘Littoral Art Work’ II (2015) (Installation/Sculpture)

‘On The Edge’ as a phrase has many associations and directions in which it could go, but because this show is at Eype, I have chosen to make the link with the sea and the shore-line and to think of the ‘edge’ in terms of the littoral, the zone that demarcates the high and low tide and to look for what the sea has thrown onto the beach out of its depths or for what the care less beach goer has lost or discarded. I made trips to Castle Cove, Ringstead Bay, Osmington, Burton Bradstock, West Bay and Eype where I collected the flotsam and jetsam with which to make this work. Inevitably, my aesthetic judgement is to the fore in the arrangement of this ‘rubbish’.
