Over the course of the past few months I have been thinking more about how we fit as a species in the ancient landscape and how the wooded landscape in particular has been the home for a prehistoric people that lived there. In the absence of any great cave painting sites in Northern Britain and very few primitive art objects and carvings being found in the archaeological record, I have made some of my own. I am absolutely convinced that 3,000 plus years ago we would have had a rich gallery of open air and portable artworks created. This new Northlands work is an extension of my earlier Kilmartin Series. Still influenced by the cup and ring marks of Argyll, Tayside and Northumberland, still inspired by the artworks of neolithic burial chambers in Ireland and always aware of the amazing pictograms of Scandinavia and Northern Spain - this is my response.
