A Change is Gonna Come, diptych, oil on canvas
These works address
coastal erosion. With sea levels rising and more coastal
predicted, the frequency of extreme storms are set to increase. Severe storms have caused
levels of damage which would normally take years. They erode vast areas of cliffs, affect
coastal paths, wildlife sites, nature reserves and coastal communities.
This diptych highlights the violence and unpredictability of the natural world. Many violent
storms start out at sea with unstable air and moisture, and eventually attack the coastline,
where they cause cliff erosion on soft geology.
