Attachments



Mounted #1, #2, #3 , Butter Point, Jerseyside (2008) 10 x 10, wax casting, oil paint, encaustic on paper

Not everything you find in a meadow is a flower. These three works were created from objects I picked up from the detritus of what was once a family shed that sat in the middle of a lovely meadow overlooking the ocean. I wanted to honour these everyday objects that had all filled important roles before the wood they were attached to had fallen into disarray.

This work is part of a solo exhibition called Remnants held at The Leyton Gallery of Fine Art in May 2008.


Here are photos of the site.

These three are absolutely wonderful. I love old rusty things, and your family's farm looks somewhat like the one in my family. Always a source of great photographs. But my favorite are the poppies. These are brilliant. I have tried to grow poppies in my garden for years but just haven't had any luck at all. I have heard they can be tempermental to start. Yours are the next best thing. . .
