Summer Tide made by Tim Pugh.

Summer Tide is a mixed media seaside installation that was created at Old Colwyn beach in Conwy on 21 st July 2012, on a limestone boulder,  just after high tide. The artwork is made up of images of the Moon together contrasted with photographs of past seaside beach drawings, being overwhelmed by the tide. The photocopies of the lunar body, were used to suggest it;s influence on the sea and tides, and the subsequent effect of the sea on the charcoal and chalk drawings. Cut out clocks and timepieces interspersed within the artwork, suggest the pulse of the sea as well as the inclusion of other images of past temporary arrangements. The artwork took four hours to make, in perfect dreamy summer weather, with no wind, or sunblock meaning I was soon sunburnt!
