Erosion 2

175 GBP

  • I loved the fibres for this piece when they arrived in the post. I unwrapped them and they fell almost as you see them here. So, I tried to keep them intact, also because they do perfectly represented the landscape and seascape that I was surrounded by at Brean Down Fort. And, I’ll let you into a secret, I love this one still - it makes me think of the Bristol Chanel churned up in a storm, reflecting the clouds and the mud. Not as picturesque as the Cornish coast but full, so full of life. Thank you to Sharon.
  • "These pieces were created using donated wool from sheep, alpaca, llama and rabbits and natural fibres, yarns and fabrics such as cotton, flax, ramie and hemp including preloved and worn fabrics. These were fused together using the wet felting method and came together to form an installation which hung from a derelict lookout at Brean Down Fort and were exposed to the full force of British coastal weather during September and October.  I wanted to see how the individual works faired – would they change, weaken, disappear?
