Reflections of Wirksworth: The Wicksworth Dream

'Reflections of Wirksworth: The Wicksworth Dream'
Commissioned as part of 'Situation Critical'
For the Wirksworth Arts Festival, Derbyshire

 


The simple lines used in 'The Wicksworth Dream' were used to create a cartographers image, yet there was also an attempt to use metaphorical symbols to create a fragmented reality. The work was influenced and reflects the landscape of Wirksworth in Derbyshire. It endeavoured to also contextualise the natural rhythms and undulations of the terrain and also attempts to reflect Wirksworth prehistory, recorded history and geology in an allegorical, whimsical and light hearted manner.

Part of the concept was to send twenty prints of the 'The Wicksworth Dream' to unknown people within the Wirksworth area. Three very pleasant thank you notes were received.
