SAXON SHORE

Recent works of land and sea, tracing the coast along the Saxon Shore Way.

The Saxon Shore Way long distance footpath runs from Gravesend in Kent to Hastings in East Sussex - it follows the original fortified boundary of Roman Britain's southern coast, crossing overland from Reculver to Richborough, marking the original Wantsum channel which separated the Isle of Thanet from the mainland.

The paintings in the exhibition came about as a result of walking sections of pathway along the Saxon Shore Way and are part of a larger ongoing project to record this diverse and unique coast and it's hinterland. From the heavy industry of the Thames estuary and the Hoo peninsula to the wetland reserves of the North Kent Marshes and the White Cliffs of the Channel coast, this constantly changing terrain has provided the inspiration for these paintings.
