These works part of a large ongoing body of work I began in 2019 titled Spirit of Place, address the effect climate change in particular global warming is having on the natural world. They are specifically about the North Cornish Coast a place I continue to revisit, where I discover a new world of such vast beauty. A place that is constantly shifting. In my works I make reference to transition and the consequences of perpetual flux, which have a profound impact on me. I find myself in front of monumental rock formations gradually eroding. These works are considered, immediate, compelling and highly relevant, subsequently made during the transition from our experience in the pandemic to the reopening up of our lives.
