Bath Spa PhD student Lydia Halcrow opens a solo show at Contains Art in Watchet this month.
Mapping Place presents Lydia's creative record of her walks along the North Devon and Somerset coastlines. She records her walking experiences in many different ways, layering research, folklore, and stories about each place to create unconventional maps.
These include the texture of the ground, views of the horizon, collected objects, trails of wildlife and the paths of routes she has walked whilst making the work. Her paintings, drawings and prints use pigments made from earth collected along the way and mimic the natural processes of erosion that she observes.
