“Sailing On”

by timpughartist


“Sailing On “,is a mixed media installation which continues the theme of the consequences of maritime degradation by the deposition of man made products into the sea.The artwork is a drawing of another old Whitehaven ship ,sketched onto a piece of old metal using a sharpie pen and installed at West Shore beach in Whitehaven, West Cumbria. Instead of industrial products which used to be exported ,now only a seemingly ceaseless flow of litter and waste products discharge into the sea.
The installation was balanced onto a piece of driftwood and frustratingly kept falling down in the light breeze. The shadow from the wood adds an interesting visual element to the artwork.
