Artist's description:

This monotype print explores the changing colours of the Bristol Channel and the landscape of Wales, peeking through the mist, whilst listening to the choral music of Sir John Tavener, someone I have recently been listening to during the making of these works.


Notes by Sir John Tavener: Fall and Resurrection (1997)

Fall and Resurrection tries to encompass, in brief glimpses, the events which have taken place since the beginning of time, and before time. The work begins in total silence, in the Paradise of God. After the silence of the beginning, a series of very hushed, deep notes spirals into a quiet but very complex uncreated chaos, in which all the potentials of good and evil are heard, and over a period of about five minutes the music travels ferociously, dissonantly and ever more loudly into a colossal storm. As I said, all the possibilities of good and evil are present in this uncreated chaos, therefore every single note carries with it a metaphysical significance although, because of the huge proliferation of the notes, this cannot be heard by the human ear. In fact, all the material of the piece (which is based on the Byzantine chant Ton Stauron sou - Thy Cross we adore) is contained in this unrelenting sound.
