Monument to the Winch

March 12, 2017 § Leave a comment

I took a drive out to the top of Lewis, near Port of Ness. A beautiful white sand beach is nearby, light blue waves, dark black rock with green sea moss. Theres all sort of tendrils of driftnet and rope that has washed up, half buried. I collected some as well as a piece of driftwood, to weave together and make a sort of windchime, or weathervane. Driving into the village I saw the brutalist concrete harbour, a zig zag of stone sheltering moorings and a slipway, with a big breaker from larger storm waves. The old winch house sits at the end of the slipway though the winch is long gone.

Found fishing rope, seaweed and driftwood collected from Traigh Shanndaigh near Eòrapaidh, Isle of Lewis, installed as a temporary decoration to the old winch-house on the ageing concrete and stone breakwater harbour at Port of Nes. Installation documentation. 2017.

I was in Scotland and Iceland recently, to see friends, and to collect some new work, I have a solo show in March/Apr next year at Seventh Gallery. It was a month away but not nearly enough.

Boat ride in Greenland Sea from Skagaströnd to Siglufjörður

May 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

The pain of 45-90 degree pitching boat in the Greenland Sea, for 9 hours, oh and stuck in the back with no real beds. In the sea footage towards the end, that pitching of the horizon is the boat…. the camera is in a fixed position. With fave salty dogs Guido van Helten and Linda Ros. Memory of a lifetime. Cannot wait to make more of these over the next 7 months….
