Pointing At The Head

8 Aug

Newport 2

We stayed awhile at Cerrig Y Gof, a group of five cists in an oval site in a field just outside the beautiful village of Newport on the North Pembrokeshire coast. This particular monument is aligned with the small peninsula of Dinas Head in the distance.

We were lucky to have good weather, the day after our eventful trip to Carn Llidi where we were buffeted by gales up a mountain. By contrast, the Newport visit was warm, sunny and calm.

I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams since a cold and stormy February , up mountains, through slurry, mud and bog, across beaches in all weathers accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.

I’ve done around 50 drawings now and these will be exhibited in my solo show in The Worker’s Gallery in the Rhondda Valley in September. Please click here to find out more about it.
