On Land is a direct response to sailing in the Western Isles of Scotland in the summer of 2012. Inspired by the contrast between the constant movement and unpredictability of being on water and the solidity and security of being back on land. I made the work on the yacht, which is why it is small as I was limited by space and materials, using paper clay and mixed media. Within it somewhere are fragments of the elements I am depicting, my internal voyage at that time and also a great deal of joy. These small pieces are in white, hand made and hand painted, contemporary style, wooden box frames. I can email an image of the framed piece on request.
