Paintings getting ready for Art in Picton, A Fishguard Arts Society Exhibition
Running from 2nd May to the 30th in the Graham Sutherland Galleries





.

Enjoyed working on 'Fingers of  Land ' an extraordinary new piece by Jon Gower for  'Ar Ymyl y Tir' On Land's Edge. Working with Tim Wickenden we put together a film which roughly co-odinated with the spoken words.
The work used words to describe Fishguard, and Goodwick, it's landscape, it's history, both ancient and modern through lyrical poetry and drama which echoed the grandeur and familiarity of the place.
This was part of a new Festival which is hoped to run in future years using local voices, talents and skills. More about can be found on the Theatr Gwaun website.
Concurrently with it and until October 9th Fishguard Arts Society put on an exhibition of paintings and photographs which reflected the theme.

One of my delights has been walking the Wales Coast Path from Pembrokeshire to Chepstow, very slowly week after week,  except when I was in Mexico and India. The walk was driven by my lover and friend Clive Jones, who had already walked the top part from Deeside.
The walk, through varied landscapes and the difficulties we encountered, finding routes and time opened up for us more of the beauty and diversity of Wales.

Putting figures into landscapes was one way forward for me to recognise the loss of human contact I was feeling during the months of isolation
we have experienced. Below are a selection of Life drawing figures pasted into an empty Fishguard...and a drunken Dylan Thomas
