What the artist says:
'The sun has dipped and the Moon gives light to the landscape'
(Gerard Manley Hopkins, 'Inversnaid')
Distilling from a vast array of the visual natural primary experiences of nature and the passing of time, filtering the prose and poetry of writers and thinkers, and viewing how other artists respond has enhanced, renewed and stimulated how I progress my work. This is particularly so with the poet G.M. Hopkins whose poem ‘Inversnaid’ has influenced me over very many years. This tapestry ‘Of Wet and Wilderness’ echoes the feelings for those high fells and moors of the landscape of the North. The multiple horizons whose tops are lit by the light of both the Sun in the day and the night Moon, the water in the valleys mirror the light, and all surrounded by the wet of the peat within the wilderness.
