where land meets sea
This work formed an exhibition at the Lapworth Museum of Geology at The University of Birmingham in 2017 as part of a cultural festival themed Land and Water
It explores the coastline of our island nation where the geology is uniquely exposed.
The relentless interaction between the sea and the rock create countless and ever-changing landforms, shapes and textures that fascinate us with their beauty and make us wonder of their origin and secrets of the past they contain.
The works reminds us that art and science are not opposites, but actually part of a continuum of human insight and creativity.
In both disciplines, particularly the physical sciences and the visual arts, it is often careful observation and empathy with the chosen subjects that fascinates, inspires and informs.
