Jerome F. Cox Fellowship

Studio Sicilia, Cianciana, Sicily - October 2014

I was invited and selected to be artist in residence for the Jerome F. Cox fellowship. I proposed and looked at the theme of migration.


Time and place are part of migration. The word ‘migration’ appears in the 1610s to describe ‘a removal, a change of abode’. The word ‘ration’ appears in the 1550s and meant ‘reasoning’. My ration, as I travelled from Leeds to Cianciana was with me, it informed the work, it was the work. The work became the journey and a journey became the work. Through my/our feet and onto the page the journey showed its fragility and what is normally discarded became a beautiful record of a place.
