This piece was one of the first images Adam did once he hit on the idea of erosion and applying it to a landscape painting. In this case he went out in front of the college in Lempa to take in the view of the Mediterranean. An amazing view which takes your breath away every day you see it - truly stunning and a place that still pulls his mind and heart towards.
It was from this vantage point Adam began experimenting with deliberately erasing and eroding the watercolour paper, using both watercolour and acrylic paint on its surface. He used brushes and his hands to apply the paint, allowing some parts to dry before pouring water over the surface.
The result is a series of eroded paintings - some he buried in previously owned Turkish land in the Turkish village of Lempa (a reaction to the political situation between the swift movement between the North and the South of Cyprus - highlighting those who had now passed on not being buried in the land they were born and grew up in), and other images were printed on with woodcut prints made from recycled wood.
There are three of these particular paintings - one is in a collection in the Czech Republic.
