This series of artwork explores the evidence of Christian faith on the Dartmoor landscape and how that landscape has, in turn, influenced those who worship in the many churches and chapels on the moor.
Of human impact, the monastic and peripatetic life can be glimpsed in the multitude of stone crosses that mark ancient paths across the moor. Also, the church of St. Michael de Rupe on Brentor and the carved Ten Commandment Stones stand out as extraordinary features of dedication to God, not least for their bleak and relatively inaccessible settings.
Complementing this aspect of the photographs, are digital collages of nature's patterns - from a seasonal panorama of the landscape to a triptych of Rock, Light and Water. In these are found expression of the belief in God's agency in nature, and the celebration of beauty.
First exhibited at The High Moorland Visitor Centre, Princetown, in April 2004. The show was the result of a 6-month residency and collaboration with the Tormentil Trust and the Dartmoor National Park Authority (sponsored by Awards for All). Toured to Ashburton in June 2004 and Exeter Cathedral in 2005.
