Birds eggs and Flying Wings. Birds wings and then eggs…duplicating beings.
Arctic # Scottish Snow Geese. Chinese cut-out stencils-
Yearning for the sea when ever inland- submerging in the wild waves whenever close enough-
reading Wordsworth and Keats- connecting to the words of longing- beautifully expressive collages of text.
Collecting shards of wings-
having fallen through the air, and drifted from sky to land-
Then painting the delicate shapes and shadows-
the strong backbone and weightless waterproof tendrils-
White # Black and all shades of grey- a myriad of experience:
A feather: A bird: A being: A life: A moment: An aspiration
Watercolour, ink, pen, mono-print and splatters
Jerico- ‘The Raft of the Medusa’ and
Delacroix- ‘Liberty leading the People’ 1980.
Dreams of flight and generational links- GRM China, VAD WW2…
inspired by Coleridge walking 40 miles a day-
endurance, trance-like, transcendental journeys of expression
Carbon emissions raining over the sacred Arctic mountains # climate change- humans…
WHERE ARE THE GEESE? Calling, circling, pre-paring to journey… Migrating in transition
ARCTIC # SCOTLAND # CHINA
Watery Ink, 1+0-1=0
More generation links, wild flowers, VAD, JMM, GRM
A dream that an Owl bit me on the head,
then an intuitive morning cycle to find a real Barn Owl-
Life: Death- Lying ghost-like, dead on the side of the road:
Life / Death, Light / Darkness, Sun / Moon, Conscious / Subconscious
Water, Air, Fire, Earth, Wind:
Circadian rhythms and cool dips in the flowing river:
Daily Spey submersions-
Cathartic, levelling, expressive tonic for the body, mind and spirit.
Dreams of a giant Arctic train, preparing to set off North-
Giant silk Flags bellowing high into the sky with plooms of steam spiralling up into space…
To go or to stay ?
Listen to the Moon
Dip deep, into the watery depths…
And cut between the layers
Chinese Forests, Cities, Rain / Arctic Ice, Mountains, Air:
