'This print is about taking the time to do nothing, an activity that can have unexpectedly productive results. Two of the seagulls here are cloud watching, and the other is coming to see what’s going on. It might be a family group.'
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.
