Journey West USA 2012

This work is inspired by a journey. In 2011 I travelled from New Mexico to San Francisco.

Pueblo Ladder

At Bandelier, where Pueblo Indians once lived in chalk caves.  The only way to access their dwellings was by climbing long wooden ladders. Ascending these precarious structures led to thoughts about achieving status and security in a delicate and fragile world.

Whilst visiting these ancient Native American sites, National Parks and crossing numerous oil fields various themes kept emerging.  Memories of this journey are fading.

Etchings and other printed works will be produced in the Aberystwyth workshop this year. 2013
