Baptism, 2014 (triptych).

Cyanotype, hand stitch, appliqué, metal thread, silk, cotton.

Tryptic w.73 x h.90cm (each).



‘Baptism’ explores the euphoric experience of cold water swimming. The primeval draw of water and ancient symbolism of ritual and spiritual cleansing are evoked through personal observations; feeling exposed yet empowered, connected with nature, the visceral, sensual awakening of the body traced as shimmering marks on the surface.


Baptism was selected for the 62 Group exhibition Ebb & Flow in 2014.
