Artist's description:

This monotype print explores the changing colours of the Bristol Channel and the landscape of Wales upon the horizon as seen from the town of Watchet in West Somerset. The use of binoculars was used to view the horizon, and so doing the device flattens the space further, leading to a shift in the way in which a view is seen - becoming forms of pattern, line, tone and colour.

These responded to thoughts about Rothko and his use of colour exploring the sublime, resonating in-turn to the philosophy of Samuel Coleridge and the Romantic ideals in the exploration of nature and the sublime.

Through the subtle colours of the Bristol Channel and the landscape of Wales, I explored the relationships between one colour and another to form a patterning of form, further expanding my thoughts about the flattening of space through the non-perspectival image as investigated through nuances in Japanese printmaking.
