Footprints  -  Trackways to Remember

This project is giving me the chance to to respond to an area which is familiar but always surprising, to reflect my liking for maps and contours and things I see and find on my walks. They two pieces run parallel to my normal work, and do not replace it.

I have used footprints to symbolise the relationship between the human and the landscape; they are timeless and the first people to walk these paths would have been barefoot.  The colours are the actual colours of the land and the view green and brown and gold, violet/blue and misty white.  The river nudges the foot of the hill, mostly unseen but a constant presence
