The following two photographs are homage/recreations of works by Dutch Artist Bas Jan Ader whose work I am analysing for my dissertation. These two photographs were taken in March of this year whilst in West Wales. In the distance is the most Westerly tip of Wales and seemed a fitting location to complement the discovery of the artist’s boat, found as it was off the coast of Ireland by Spanish fishermen in April 1976. Thanks to Hannah for taking these. The wild landscape of West Wales coupled with the experience of falling were both inspiring epiphanic. I will be analysing Bas Jan Ader’s use of objects and the body as object to explore gravity, emotions and process in his art. To the library, its time to write this dissertation.
