About the Book
Landscapes ask questions about the presence of places. In trying to make sense of Bodmin Moor, Philip Marsden wrote...
it was the same urge that drove our Neolithic ancestors to arrange the moorstone into circles at the Hurlers — the same questions that tease us now: what law, what force, what patterns exist in the vastness of space? 2004, p, 42
These paintings seek to capture some of the presence of place, especially of Bodmin Moor - the visible and the submerged.
Further works lean on the poetry of the evangelical and non-conformist local Christian, Jack Clemo, as he contemplates the anagorical significance of the china clay mining that impacted upon his landscape.
