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.
