Looking in all directions
Landscape and perspective constantly change,while moving through it .Yet they can remain constant.The sea is sublime,but changes even more than land – it is constantly evolving.
For those working it,they must be aware of this changing environment and it’s lurking danger. The sea is sublime, is also a place of tragedy.
People will always work,play,swim and eat from it .Some lives end in it.
Every scenic and dramatic stretch of Irish coastline has its own history of wrecks and drowning; every cemetery has stories and memorials to those who have no bodies left to bury. Memorials of those lost to the sea are few, but are often monuments placed away from communities. (now includes Icons for fishermen series)This work is an attempt to understand in particular, sudden death and souls that do not return from the sea.
