Shore Leave

I’m participating in Elysium Gallery’s current offsite project Shore Leave. It’s on in the Pantywylan Warehouse, Cardigan, Wales, from the 16th to the 30th of August. To steal a quote from their website:

“The exhibition takes its name from the periods of time that sailors were allowed on dry land in between long voyages. Shore Leave was once the scourge of major sea port towns like Cardigan in the 18th and 19th centuries where hundreds of crew members would descend upon the town and over indulge in pleasures that were not available to them during the months on long voyages. These were people out of the routine of life at sea and on unfamiliar territory, in between places resulting in extreme and unpredictable behaviours.”
