From: A Sinking Feeling at The Dovecote Gallery, Valentines Mansion.
In this collaborative work Kathy Taylor and I were responding to the final voyage of The Valentine. The ship came to grief on rocks in a violent storm off Guernsey on November 16th 1779 on its return voyage from India.  Some of the original cargo was retrieved 200 years later including Red Dyewood (Pterocarpus santalinus) some of which we used as both an exhibit and as a dye in some of the works in order to complete the narrative of its journey back to the mansion.
