Walkscapes: Francesco Carerri is in the LRC
Wednesday, 29 February 2012
I have started to think about ways of producing artwork that uses found items at each place I visit and hope the the images I capture will provide inspiration as well as providing a way to document my journey.
The bay has a Church above it and woodland in front of it, which used to be the site of a naval gunnery.
A stream runs down to the beach that used to power a Sixteenth century wheat mill.
The mill is now a cafe and gift shop.
Unsure of what I would find or what may inspire me I decided to sit and do a quick sketch of the mill and then explore the beach taking photographs of anything of interest to me.
I have chosen initially to visit the places along the South West coastal path from Wembury to Mount Batten, which is on the opposite side of the Barbican in Plymouth.
I hope to respond to directly to each location I visit, allowing each site and situation to influence any artwork I may produce.
