Description

Once again the context is the ancient past and man’s place in the environment. This landscape is from the Welsh Brecon Beacons at Cerrig Duon. Here the landscape is scattered with ancient sacred sights like the stone circle just visible on the left. Dwarfed as these constructions are in the immense wilderness, they were nevertheless magnets to the far flung population at certain times in the calendar. The journey then, has a special intrinsic significance; and here it is shown both as a festive outing (centre panel) and as an astral travelling (right panel) akin to the Aboriginal ‘Walkabout.”

Man Journey is realised on triptych inner panels. Please note that when collapsed the work’s width is 49 inches.
