Each of the small sand and timber panels I conceptualise as a sign that when juxtaposed with another becomes a visual narrative open to interpretation. The ‘message’ - albeit ambiguous and open-ended - is communicated through repeated patterns, materials, textures and images that relate to each other in some way. The sands I have used on these wall panels have been collected from different places but are used here as textural and colour elements. These pieces have been influenced by my study of rock art and having lived by the beach for the past six years.
