We went out last evening to Jennycliff Bay to look at "Nowhereisland" and for those that don't know, "...Nowhereisland is a Situations project led by artist Alex Hartley, one of 12 Artist Taking the Lead projects for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad funded by Arts Council England..." Well I have to say I wasn't overly impressed as, A: it was out at sea and unless you are also 'out at sea' it's just a black blob, and B: it seemed pretty pointless (let me know your views). However, all was not lost as whilst we were out there we came across Dave Crocker (as seen in th picture above) who is undertaking a series of 365 paintings of the South West Coast Path between Mount Batten & Wembury. Now it's one thing to pop out when the weathers good and take a few pictures, indeed many photographers do a 365 project, but it is another thing entirely to do it with a brush! If you find yourself in Plymouth between the 21st to 23rd of August, be sure to pop into the RElegacy gallery (35 New St, Barbican) and check out Dave's work so far - I'll be looking in to see the finished picture above. Anyway, nice meeting you Dave and good luck with the rest of the project.
Born in 1956 (so getting on a bit now) I'm married and have two wonderful children we all live in Devon in the South West of England - on the Cornish border.
