Import/Export - landscapes

Our land is full of minerals and pigments – but we never seem to use them. Here I’ve added samples collected from around town to my paint mixes to get the colour ‘right’ if there is such a thing. Ships and shipping, mining and exporting the landscape is something we take for granted. Ironically the bulk carriers are all made of steel so there is a beautiful ( if thats the right word) circular relationship…I havent found the words.
