Nick Sinclair’s photographs of the paintings on the harbour walls of Funchal, Madeira speak to all of us who dwell on land and like it that way. They speak of a huge and alien world. It is a world that is always there even when we turn our backs on it, in the sound of waves on shingle, in the calls of seabirds, and in the flash of white canvas on the horizon. This is the world of Atlantic sail. For centuries it was part of everyday life – the ships that set sail, the ships that returned, the ships that did not. Now in the age of air travel it is seen by few, and known by fewer.

But the wind-driven world of the Atlantic maritime still exists, in all its old simplicity. The boats under sail still arrive. And by some unspoken arrangement their portraits appear on the harbour wall. There is no hanging committee here – if you are compelled to paint, then you paint. Many, perhaps most of these paintings express some of the intensity of the offshore passage, a pitch of experience that any sailor will recognise.

Nothing lasts long in the Atlantic sun and salt wind. An ocean passage in a small boat is as transient and vital as a meteor track. These photographs record that flash of experience.
