In this print the sky is full of strange clouds of different kinds, drifting over the sea. Some looking a little like airships or alien spacecraft. A silent drama is being played out in the sky.
One of an ongoing series of seascapes and sky images that have clouds as its main focus.
Simon Tozer is a printmaker based in Bristol. His screen prints are constructed images, built up through the layering of translucent colours and through a combination of hand drawn and digital mark making.
The images are a response to the idea of expansiveness: drifting clouds
that cross the elemental boundary of land and water, and the reorientation of the sense of self that occurs when, on arriving at the ocean we encounter that vastness of space and the hypnotic attraction of the sea.
