IN THE BEGINNING

SOUTH COAST GALLERY 2007

Some believe that life itself formed from deep sea hydrothermal vents and so I started investigating. I became intrigued by these exotic looking mounds, spires and chimneys billowing black smoke and teeming with a multitude of strange creatures and thus “The Creation” was formed. The more I learnt about this amazing world, in the abyss, the more I wondered, if this was the start of life then what is happening to those precious life forms in the face of global warming and our changing seas. I found lots of disturbing information. The works in this exhibition are about the need to stop and think of how beautiful yet fragile it all is. “A thousand half drunk cups of tea. A thousand empty seas. Am I wasted in a wonderland or wondering in a wasteland.” Amy
