A series of drawings based upon flotsam and jetsam collected from the Dorset Coastline.
"I like to have a connection to a place by spending time working on location. This work is part of an on-going project and is the result of a process of collection, observation and recording at various locations along Dorset’s shoreline. On site brushes are swapped for seaweed, driftwood, gull feathers, brine and stones. Collections of ‘littoral litter’ are brought back to the studio, which provide a rich source material for drawing and photography. Plastic containers, nylon rope and fishing-line, weights, bottles and tin cans reveal an alien universe, a paradox where strange beauty is discovered within an ever-increasing pollutant of our seas. The physical action of the journey the flotsam and jetsam have taken, the energy of sea currents and wave power, is evident in the patterns of twisted and tangled rope, plastic, seaweed, driftwood nets and line."
