Location images by the late Kevin Matthews

Most of the recent artwork has been inspired by the Solway Firth:

 

Changes, sometimes minute and fleeting, sometimes colossal and irreversable, but happening every twelve hours.

No visible barrier between solid and liquid - safe and dangerous. Only travelled on by trial and error and tip-offs.

A magnet for wild and domestic animals.

A natural barrier between two warring nations for generations.

A rich then bankrupt industrial heritage.

For these and many other reasons, I attempt to record and relate the times and tides of this place.
