Beach borne and tide/wave-formed mini-tableaux or vignettes of flotsam and detritus, more often than not the combination of naturally defunct material and un-natural, discarded human artefacts. Deftly arranged by natural forces into seductive formations, they are also, in equal part sinister and uneasy reminders of human pollution and incursion into the otherwise bio-degradable natural environment. They have a certain visual intrigue and even elegance, but the feeling of sad pathos and almost irreversible damage. Further down this gallery you'll encounter studies based on amassed populations and diverse shell colour and decoration of the Dog Whelk (Nucella lapillus), covering sea-shore rock faces in Gower, Wales. Thereafter, also various further observations of foreshore features, and Carboniferus period ancient coral-reef fossil strata in-situ. All paintings 250x350mm, un-stretched, so a little wavy, on Fabriano Unica 250gsm paper. Can be framed 'floated' style, or window-mounted/dry-mounted for a flush finish.
