“St Bee’s Collection”

by timpughartist

“St Bee’s Collection”,is a simple installation created on an intriguing beach location in West Cumbria.Pebbles were carefully selected for particularly outstanding and beautiful textural and colour properties ,reflecting the diverse geology of the area.The actual collection of the stones took longer than the construction of the artwork and was sited on a sandstone backdrop. The incoming tide deconstructed the arrangement in a matter of seconds ,rearranging and depositing the pebbles back to their former state on the seabed. A temporary loan of materials taken back by the unceasing pulse of the tide.
