Landscapes — Pathways

Drawing: Ridge path at Hawnby

Ridge Path at Hawnby (1995)
North Yorkshire series
Charcoal on paper
84cm x 114cm

Sitting on top of the ridge looking along the pathway I found a connection with the place. It was as if the spine of the ridge was the spine of an enormous dragon asleep, an ancient memory embedded within the landscape. In 2010 I returned to the theme of dragons in making work as shown in this little piece: Dragon lion of Earth and Alchemy 2010.
