‘Ripple’

Lower Laithe reservoir, South Pennines, West Yorkshire, May-Oct 2014
Fields of Vision, Yorkshire Cultural Festival as part of Grand Depart, Tour De France, July 2014.

‘Ripple’ was one of twelve land art works in the South Pennines landscape which animated a 65mile route of the Grand Départ, Tour de France. The works were created through collaboration between artists, members of the Young Farmers, scientists, cyclists, communities, farmers and landowners. Artists interpreted the distinctive features of the South Pennine uplands to portray the interactions between landscape and community using the unifying theme of water with its influence on life and land.

‘Upstream’

Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags, National Trust, West Yorkshire. Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, 2014.
‘Upstream’ is a site-specific body of mixed media work exploring how water influences the character of the landscape in and around the uplands of the South Pennines. The project built on research as a Leverhulme Artist in Residence with water@leeds, University of Leeds.

The work was based on dialogue with the scientists who study the upland environment, ‘Upstream’ offers a unique insight into how upland habitats and their management affect water quality and carbon storage.

‘Fold’

National Botanical Garden of Wales, 2003.

Inspired by an exploration of plant material, I wanted to use grass in a unique and geometric way. A ripple through a meadow on the hillside was the result. These sculptural folds in the earth provide a place to nestle and an excuse to spend time in the meadow.
