Finding the path ahead…

Falling Water ~one hour by a dartmoor river~

January 5, 2016

The beginnings of a new beginning….

Falling Water

~one hour by a dartmoor river~

.

.

.

noon

a few days
past midwinter
the dark seasons spell
still holds sway

the sun scores a line

but only for a moment
as the edge of the wide basin
hemmed by smooth peaks
is lost to cloud
once again

.

.

.

two rooks cross the murk
one higher calling the other
dark shapes in a dark sky

the wind

with its broad pushes and pulls

tests the dark wings
which skew and slant
its edges rifting a path
which slams shut behind

the voice
and sight of these travellers
is lost to the distance

.

……………

This is the start of a new long poem to be accompanied by music, painting, drawing and photography.

New Music

This is the first track for a new project about Dartmoor and its weather… it features, whistles, piano, and strings, combined with some ambiances I recorded on Dartmoor during stormy weather… some of the whistle parts were recorded in a small church close to the river Dart.

Art For Life Commission.

April 1, 2014

Late last year I was commissioned, by ‘Art for Life’ http://www.artforlife.nhs.uk/ to produce a work for a department in a local NHS hospital, that will act as something to catch the eye and stop visitors bypassing the reception desk in a high intensity assessment ward. The main painting is being reproduced and turned into a light-box installation. A link across the floor will then join a pixelated/abstracted image on the opposite side, filling two windows.

The works were completed last month, and should be positioned in the MAU department of Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton Somerset in the near future.

I would like to thank Lisa Harty and the team at Art for Life for the opportunity and their assistance in bringing the project to fruition.
