Artist's description:

This drawing explores a rock I collected during my walks along the coastline of Watchet and the Bristol Channel. I was walking along the beach from Watchet to Minehead at low tide when I came across this rock. I picked it up and placed in my bag initially to use for pigments: grinding down into powder and mixing with medium and linseed oil.
Back at the studio I looked at the rock and decided to draw as an ink drawing in biro pen, exploring various ways one can use lines to create form and capture the passing of time through the shifting light as the sun moved throughout the day, revealing various forms, shadows and shapes on the rock.

This represents the passage of time and how one perceives time through objects in space, whilst the object is removed from its context of time. Formed of layered silt, compressed over time through pressure, heat and the movement of continental plates, this drawing was exhibited as part of The Time Machine exhibition at Contains Art, and published in their Time Machine book coinciding with the exhibition and the anniversary of HG Wells and his novel.

Professionally framed by Courtyard Framing in Minehead.
