Sand 48 ~ 12th August 2017 ~ Brean, Somerset, UK.
Working in a constant 20mph sea breeze, Sand 48 took my team and I five hours to create and measured approximately 400ft in diameter. Revisiting elements of the geometry contained within Sand 15, the art is underpinned by a triangulated grid of 58 centre-points, each of which were utilised in turn to create this organic looking piece.
Sand 47 ~ 8th July 2017 ~ 300ft ~ Brean, Somerset, UK
This piece of sand art was somewhat spontaneous. Scheduled at short notice, my team and I arrived at the beach later than usual. Uncertain as to whether we’d have time to create the intended artwork before the tide came in, we decided to improvise and make something up. After creating an initial 30m(r) ring and dividing it into six, the piece naturally evolved until it reached a point where I felt the art was complete.
Sand 46 (Man in the Maze) ~ 20th May 2017 ~ 290ft ~ Brean, Somerset, UK
The labyrinthine symbol depicts our journey through life (from birth to death, with all its associated twists and turns)
Sand 45 ~ 10th September 2016 ~ 280ft ~ Brean, Somerset, UK
I was able to visit Brean on 10th September to create my latest piece of sand art with the kind assistance of Paul Burton and Khi Deva. The 280ft diameter artwork took around 6 hours to complete. Inspired by patchwork quilts, the design is effectively two differing square shaped patterns which have been overlaid at an offset angle to form one completed design.
Sand 44 ~ 14th August 2016 ~ 263ft ~ Brean, Somerset, UK
It was great to be able to visit the coast last weekend and get creative once again with my beach buddies! The ‘endless knot’ design that we incorporated into this piece symbolises a nature of reality where everything is interconnected. The cube is representational of union and permanence, yet paradoxically, the ever changing sand canvas acts as a metaphor for the impermanence of all that exists. Thank you to my co-creators: Paul Burton, Mirka Stadtruckerova, Khi Deva, and Kat Kinnie for helping to bring the art off of the drawing board for all to appreciate!
Sand 43 ~ 29th May 2016 ~ 275ft ~ Brean, Somerset, UK
Here are the photos of my latest piece of 3D sand art. It was good to get creative once again on the beach at Brean. Thanks to Paul Burton, Mirka Stadtruckerova, and Stuart Dike for helping me create the 275ft artwork, and to Matthew Williams and MrGyro.co.uk for documenting the event 🙂
