FLOATING BRIDGES SERIES

This group of paintings and drawings explore the repeated journeying back and forth on the ferries between Plymouth and Torpoint.

In parallel to their external reality – their steel, rust, machinery and rhythmic repetitions – there is a correlation to our inner emotional and more abstract world. For we too have our own mechanisms and plans, and we also have our oscillating rhythms, repeatedly transforming foreign shores into home soil. We and the ferries are therefore facsimiles of each other. Our lives are the accumulation of our shuttling between opposites, knitting back together what was separate. We are all floating bridges.

Our material reality is linked to our poetic reality –  they each conjure the other.
