I love these subjects best. Cliffs and falling down buildings.
Experiencing the natural world through art
McArthurs warehouse in Bristol was the home of Artspace before they moved round the corner to the redeveloped Brooke Bond tea factory at Spike Island in 1998. When I first came to Bristol I used to go to etching there at Bristol Printmakers with Emma Stibbon and Anna Gillespie ( both now successful artists) and also attended Peter Reddick's woodcut class . While its current appearance is exactly what I love to paint, I am sad it has been let rot further for nearly 20 years. There are so few original dock buildings left. At least it has not been knocked down, unless this is a ploy to make it so derelict that it has to be demolished for safety.
