Looking Back: Little Views

The Cabin, Bucks Mills, North Devon

The Cabin, Bucks Mills, North Devon.

For this artist’s residency, having no specific outcome required of me, I was able to respond and explore the Cabin and its surroundings in depth – recording my findings with written notes, quick sketches, photographs  and some small, short-lived  land art pieces – the beginnings of future developments.

Some of the pictures have captions. If you click on the thumbnails below, you can read the captions in full – as well as seeing bigger pictures.

THE ARRIVAL

 

THE BEACH

Seaweed, rocks, limpets, water, sky:  I  like to collaborate with nature, so that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between nature’s expression and my own.

INTERIOR

 As you see, I was slowly becoming merged with the place.

 

THE WOODS

More about the Cabin can be seen on my two most recent posts, and also on Time Present and Time Past, which I wrote a few years ago after a brief introductory visit.

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.

    I love the environmental art you created, particularly the ones made from stones.

  2. Thanks so much Sydney for your encouraging comment! I gained huge insights into the nature of this place, and a strong sense of being caught up in endless stories. I have tons of notes written, and it is all going to take a long time for me to digest!

    What a magical place. I am reminded of spending time on the west coast of Newfoundland, exploring the shoreline, and making small works there – the first gestures in a dialogue with a place unfamiliar to me. There’s a real conversation between you, the cabin, and the shore & woods that develops in these photos. Looks like you had a fantastic time!
