Experimentation with sand
'Iona to Milos' was exhibited in COAST exhibition in An Talla Solais, Scotland
‘Iona to Milos’ is a work reflecting my own path in time and place using sand I have collected from the islands of Scotland and Greece while I lived there. By bringing these two locations together, I create my own sense of place and past.
The sand holds all the collective memory of the shore and the sea in its grains, without taking any shape or form. The coast is treated as an ever self-erasing canvas where all marks of time and action vanish.
This work speaks of transience and memory, shaping and erasing, as I am trying to revisit and recreate my trace on these coasts.
