… following on from my previous post (a wilder sea… a Cornish art residency), here are some more images, sketches etc specifically on the mining area around St Just that I produced during those two weeks at Brison’s Veor. (Sorry, some photos rather low quality).
Bottallack and Levant mine areas are National Trust and are easily accessible from the SW coastal path and Geevor mine is open to the public with guided tours (you can go inside a real mine!).
Eventually I’m hoping these spark off a body of artwork, especially the abstract elements.
Y’know I could never see the appeal or distinction in Troika pottery – but now in seeing your abstracts all is clear. Also Sir Terry Frost’s work may speak to you https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/sir-terry-frost-1126
Really enjoying this body of work Mari – thanks for sharing it.
Thanks Elaine, that’s an interesting observation about Troika pottery, I’ll have to have another look at it. Always liked Terry Frost’s work. Really pleased you enjoyed the post. 🙂
