There are two sundials on the south side of Lincoln Cathedral (consecrated 1092), with the inscription reminding us that ‘time passes quickly’ – a view you can understand when something has been around for over a thousand years, but measured against geological time it is insignificant.
#timeandtide – metamorphosis
Although now cold, some craggy mountain structures were formed by volcanic action and were born from deep in the earth as white-hot lava flowed to the surface. Worn down thousands of years later into smaller rounded shapes by icy glaciers, the mount that remains is a pleasingly shaped structure – a mere shadow of its former self, yet still resisting its ultimate fate.
Mounts are the inspiration for an abstract series which suggests birth, metamorphosis, and present state.
