Walking along the river hearing the rigging frapping in the wind, yachts and boats thrust upon supports, like butterflies pinned to a board.
An intrigued sadness of seeing the vessels incapacitated whilst under repair. The historic changes that take place at an old wharf are worth keeping for social history as much as visual documentation.
The materials and techniques i use help me understand the subject and make it tactile for me in layers and colours. I re explore the scene as I make each piece. I work on line and texture and tone simultaneously, the final image will only be known when all 54 squares are together for the first time.
I would like the viewer to have a feel for boatyard and a wharf, the urge to touch the surfaces and explore the images is important, that is the experience of the work and of the subject.
