‘Head Above Water: A Swimmer’s Perspective’.
Metaphorically, i have spent much of my life, keeping my head above water.
Dealing with life facts and disappointments, not forgetting the quiet times to help the work along.
I lived on the coast, played by the sea.
As a child, I floated gently until all became spongey. Now I swim head above water, up and down obsessively counting, hoping all will come clear..
Friends in water talk more, baring much, reflecting their clothing.
I am drawn to water, my work reflective.
I collect cuttings of people in water.
“a diary, a personal relationship with the landscape.
“Shoreline would be more an exploration of the concept….shorelines more related to actual examples…..how about that?
Shoreline…..an ever-changing interface……between 2 media…..2 worlds…..can be crossed in both directions, but only temporarily?……
aren’t we only here because something had the courage to crosspermanently…..
something emerging from the sea is such a powerful image….turtles, ursula andress in dr. no, monsters from the deep….
why do we find it such an attractive place to be?
