For the Exhibition I have produced a short movie using time lapse photography to show the natural process of erosion, a passage of time, movement, and place, movement taking place that would normally go unrecognised. This was put together using photographs taken over several mnths each one timed, and dated. They were then placed onto the timeline in premiere pro, using cross dissolves to blend from one to another. I then took several short clips using video of the tide at different times and superimposed them onto the timeline above the photographs using an oppacity tool to reveal the timelapse in the background. Through research a local resident gave me some old slides which showed the last house on Parton beach to be destroyed by the tide these were incorporated to where the foundations now stand unearthed by the tide into the timelapse. This was then saved and encoded in Premier pro, then converted to DVD using Nero Vision.

Also to be exhibited, is a large triptych painting constructed out of layers.The first layer an action painting technique, using mixed mediums was similar to that of Jackson Pollock.  The second a variety of contrasting textures, finished with a top layer of white paint.  Within the under- layer, the viewer is invited to question whether the repeated underlying strokes represent familiarity.  By adding and taking away, a variation of objects can be seen floating to the surface, strange shapes emerging out of the whiteness.  Materials such as brick, coal, glass, salt, and pottery, are found fragments, marking a passage of something, associated to the past. They are two dimensional forms emerging out of the surface.

A broken line of stone and coal within the series is a representation of time and movement, and may suggest broken boundaries, caused by the erosion process of time. However the line appears to be floating on the surface, which then becomes a hybridity between painting and sculpture.
