These works evolved from trips around Europe in 2003 and 2005. I had begun seeing images, architectural forms, landscapes and atmosphere that fitted within the things I am interested in - the St Andrews cross on Amalfi Cathedral, the Martini Frescoes in the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, the Ocher landscape at Rousillon. In these works I am making connections with places which for me are of cultural significance. A sort of updated "Grand Tour" record. These works subsequently led to the Sacred Places, Ritual Spaces and Shelter Series produced after later visits to Europe.
