Mixed media works based on the coast lines of Great Britain. Harriet started the project in her home county of Kent and will progress to the North Yorkshire coastline around Whitby, Scarborough, Staithes and Runswick Bay in early 2017. The first five works are now in the gallery, sized at A1 and looking fantastic! We are anticipating showing some of Harriet's Kent scenes, which is a lovely connection to our roots before arriving in Yorkshire back in 2010.
Infinite Horizon - a panoramic series
Harriet Peachey is a British artist currently documenting the coastline of Great Britain.She has been fascinated by remote coastlines and vast seas since studying fine art in Kent.
Photographing a specific location is the starting point as are the drawings which are often composed whilst on location. She then incorporates these images with maps, tide timetables and layers of painterly texture within her work and begins to address the relationship of when the land meets the sea.
The horizon line is a fundamental element in Harriet’s work. During the image making process the line is situated at an apparent height so when the images are placed together, there is a panoramic link which evidently becomes an Infinite Horizon.
Harriets journey started in Whitstable, and she has continued onto Margate, Deal and Dungeness. She is currently collaborating images of Rye and Hastings and will be visiting Yorkshire in January 2017 to conduct studies of the coastline for a unique series based on Whitby, Runswick Bay, Staithes, Scarborough and all places in between.
