Monday 29 january 2007

A lovely day for walking the beach , the tide was in, sand had covered much of the detritus. Collected small, dead ,dried pipe fish which seem to litter the beach again. A good day for thinking. Watched the waves and the sun going down across the river.

22 January 2007

I’m at Dean Clough now, looking at the exhibition, it looks good. Thanks to everyone there.


Cold, bitterly cold, windy, roaring noise from the sea blown waves. The marram grass quivers like the hair on a large arm brown now from the burning salt winds, it rustles like the erect tail feathers on a peacocks tail, beautiful yet menacing.
Lots of plastics to find today , lumps of tar, hundreds of dead pipe fish.
I met an interesting man hunting for evidence of sewage among the seaweed debris, its not hard to find.

My first visit inside the lighthouse studio, a really interesting space. I think the shape will have an effect on the artwork I produce there, I’m thinking long and thin, blocks of colour. The view from the top is wonderful; one can really see the fragility and that we are so very small in the expanse of sea.
A large whale has been washed up on the riverside @60, it stinks lots, but is quite interesting to see. The university boffins are desluffing the bones to preserve them.

dandilion spiral

there has been a little concern that the flowers may have been picked on the nature reserve, this is against the NNR policy. This spiral was created in my back garden from plants in my grass. i go for the natural look in garden landscaping, more time for art.
