The coastal work in this exhibition expanded on my canal residency. As many canals begin and end their journey into the gateway of the sea, I broadened my perspective to include some Scottish Coastlines. In contrast to the calm surface of the canals these vast coastal vistas offer a different challenge. Dramatic rocky jagged outcrops stretch out to the sea, the rhythmic sound of waves a constant background hum, the colours of the surface changing constantly with the subtle play of light and motion. I worked on a large scale 1 meter square on deep edge linen.
