The Chill Air 1
View all sizes

Bringing to the imagination of the mind, those almost forgotten places of dreams, of childhood memories. I am always drawn towards those eerie and surreal, dreamlike worlds where strange images and unsettling objects inhabit their own lonely, isolated spaces. Here, they inhabit flooded sands like grey misty wraiths wound up, hanging shoulder-high, always ahead of me, catching my eye, their features almost faceless, not recognisable, they stare blankly, blank as the mood I walk in, the atmosphere weighing me down into the stony water.

I let these places give me starting points to discover my own deeper emotions, inner wonders within my mind especially those of dreams, either new or long forgotten. Walking in Mistero’s partially flooded land, using monochrome to convey the isolation, the loneliness of the disquieting poses, pained figures lost in a moment of time; I walk round them and once past these dream people, my eyes entertain no dream and even the sandy dust loses its lustre under my foot soles. The long, lonely howl of wind, oppressively pares my person down to the barest pinch of flame, it blows its burdened whistle deep in the whorl of my ear, and like a scooped-out empty head, my mind cups the babble of the wind, the haunted voices.

Losing myself in the darkness of ‘The Chill Air’, as all the night gave me, in return for the paltry gift of my bodily bulk and the beat of my heart was the humped indifferent greyness of these bodies, beaches, and its flooded sands bordered by grey stone set on greyer stone. It’s enough to snuff the quick of my small heat out, but before the weight of these stony figures and place of stones could break me down to mere quartz grit in that stony light to join them in their eternal silent scream, I turn back.


 Wonderful work and a charming scene, very well executed!
