As an intuitive response to my mother's sudden death I walked the Suffolk coast reconsidering my childhood landscape with eyes of an adult, mourner and artist. Concrete cubes sporadically emerged, man-made interjections into a landscape of flux, spontaneously arousing the memory of a jumper my mother knitted. As I walked recollections emerged and these absurd cubes offered themselves as blank vessels into which memories, emotions and ideas were stored. In heavy fog the cubes provided perspective, their rhythm and geometry implied duration and an attempted rationalisation of chaotic nature. Though as I walked the more uneven and irregular the blocks were as over time soft sands shifted, nature slowly wrapped and crushed the concrete and some disappeared over receding cliffs.
