The Vardre

THE VARDRE – Unearthing Y FARDRE

Inspired by the presence of a volcanic rock above Deganwy and the Conwy river I have now created a body of work that not only experiments with painting but also the inherent history of a place going back thousands of years as well as its context within Celtic and Welsh identity.

Like a fly landing on a shoulder I sit on that rock as though it is a living conscious thing. I wonder at what it has seen, witnessed and suffered; its relationship with human scarring it rocks, building their fortresses and now their homes; and what will the future bring when we are gone.

The paintings give it a voice.

The work has not as yet been exhibited but there are plans for an exhibition and book possibly by 2020
