RB Series

This series is about the Rotten Bottom Bog – a raised bog situated above the Carrifran valley in the Moffatdale Valley.

The paintings concern a sense of time and place in the vastness of this particular landscape.

It is the place where a bow was found and thought to be 6000 years old. I was influenced by the visual nature of the core pollen samples taken from the Rotten Bottom Bog during a research project by University of Stirling to ascertain what trees existed in this valley over 6000 years ago and the landscape above the Carrifran Valley.
