'Where the Sand meets the Sea and the Sun'

Where the Sand meets the Sea and the Sun represents infinity and resurrection. These three landscape horizontal markers (sand, sea, sun) merge and connect to the earth. There is an expansive sensation when facing these elements, but also a sense of insignificance and vulnerability. To me, this force of nature merges with my own presence and there is a sense of being reshaped as a ‘man of clay’. This exhibition traces memories associated with my late father Huw Halse and explores his love of the ocean. The work has open and vulnerable passages but there is also a need to structure light and stabilise the movement of water, shifting sands, and fluid painterly passages. There are some traces of my father’s architectural plans that are embedded into the collages and the forms trigger memories and provide ideas for structural frameworks. Form in the work is generated through haptic processes and as a gestural painter, this expressive offering that is embedded in the material embodies a personal truth. Fiona Halse, artist.
