Northern Stones and Peat Smoke to be exhibited at the Kirkby Gallery, Knowsley, Merseyside in 2019.
Like Shuk, the Viking dog, who beats
By legend a night path over these marshes
Looking for a boat that’s long pulled out
To find place in the heart of nothing
Northern Stone is part of a current project entitled ‘Northern Stones and Peat Smoke’ in which the artist is developing imagery reflecting upon selected poetry, text and narrative description of British landscape by contemporary and historical writers. This involves choosing and visiting remote upland and coastline sites which are associated or geographically linked to the researched text, drawing and collecting visual material to create prints in the studio.
