The Gaze vs the innards of landscape

The higher latitudes because they exist in the remote part of our thoughts and globe and are less travelled and populated yet are undergoing rapid changes in a fascinating sequence.

As threatening as it is to document and observe a melting ice cap, my imagination mists through chambers of crystalline structures and rare minerals, fossils, and geological wonders of what sits below that ancient weight of frozen time/water.

It might take a while

Before a studio space comes open...

 Continuing working on the floor in the flat. The task currently; constraints of art materials. Paper with a few mark-making pencils, inks, glue and tape. I construct 'scapes' on packing paper that I acquire via purchases of groceries, clothing, Amazon packing materials etc.

One of my applications has been approved by BV studios and I'm in the 'pool' for when a space becomes available. Bristol, being one of Britain's manufacturing hubs during the industrial revolution has repurposed old solid factory buildings etc. for artist's studios and creative tech use.

Now the green haze of Spring is spreading across the city as trees tentatively open into leaf; a different experience than a California Spring which has already arrived boldly and rapidly impatient for glorious Summer.
