I was doing a large meditative drawing today, exploring chaos and control and carried a bit of it into this collage.

I am interested in exploring why some things go together, some clash, some make beauty, some excite, some create ugliness. What conditioning makes us each see things differently or agree on their qualities?

022 – Cogden again
Paper, wave-battered aluminium, found fishing tackle and watercolour 290mm x 210mm

Really struggled with the photography on this one. I must upgrade my Photoshop skills. This piece features a wave-battered aluminium can fragment and discarded fishing tackle found today on Hive and Cogden Beaches, the next ones along from the beaches featured in the ITV drama Broadchurch .

This is associated with the Tidelines project that I am working on. The aluminium can base was found on Cogden Beach on the beautiful Jurassic coast just along from where the TV series Broadchurch was filmed. I have been looking for a place to use it. I am really pleased with the way this piece turned out and it has spurred me on to experiment further in some of the larger pieces I am working on.

Just a small one today. Late after a busy day at the Film Festival this morning, lunch with friends, afternoon and evening with a client. More of a postcard than a letter.
