Forefather, v/e drypoint and chine collé

The landscape we live in interests me. Recently there has been time to explore, to cycle and walk in the landscape, to experience sunrises and sunsets and imagine the lives of people who inhabited the land before us. The fields, hills and waterways we see today may have been the setting for unknowable acts and events at another time. My work for this exhibition references history, myth, memory and observation. It responds to personal research regarding our ancestors, our earliest flora and fauna and new research  and theories put forward by archaeologist Bill Daly. The works are mixed media prints. They combine processes such as drypoint, collograph, monoprinting and chine collé.
