Quarry Project

I have been researching working stone quarries in Yorkshire. The following paintings were inspired by my experiences of visiting them. My aim was to capture something of the atmosphere but also the thoughts that being in those places evoke. Seeing the geology of our planet laid bare, puts our place in nature into perspective and highlighted for me the fragility of life. How we use Earth's resources is important to me and my environmental concerns came through whilst creating the work.

These paintings were in my solo exhibition Delving Deeply: An exploration of what lies beneath through the medium of paint  held at Dean Clough Galleries, Halifax HX3 5AX from 23rd March to 27th May 2024.
