About the Artist
“I live and work on the Isle of Berneray in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland - a speck amidst a chain of islands on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.”
“To dwell in such a place, where the forces and cycles of nature are extreme, is both inspiring and humbling. Nature here is dictator, rhythm setter and provider despite our technological advancements.”
“I work creatively with natural phenomena, taking my inspiration from the complexity, strength and beauty of the oceans and wild lands.”
“Appreciating the knowledge, skills and culture of the people who dwell in these places is part of this process. However, my work is from the perspective that humans are not central but merely part of these naturally occurring systems and cycles that are complex, integrated and vast.”
“Each of my wind drawings are unique.. The large scale wind drawings are generated using a large tripod situated in a windy spot somewhere on the Isle of Berneray in the Outer Hebrides. The smaller circular Storm Barrel drawings may have travelled a bit as this equipment is more hardy, transportable and can be left out for long periods of time, even throughout a full storm.”
“Each drawing is named after the Shipping Forecast for the day on which it was made.”
