“(distant )Miners “.
“(distant ) Miners”, was sketched out on a bare rock next to a derelict iron ore mine in West Cumbria. I cut out an image of a group of Victorian miners and used it as a template on the rock to draw around text based on historical information about Birks Mine.I wanted to create an faded image that suggested a memory of the mining activity in homage to the workers.
The drawing was made on a rock frequented by owls and crows that had feathers from various kills
scattered around the base.
