Excellent condition
A dense and threatening cloak of charcoal cloud, heavy with rain, hangs above the narrow band of ploughed fields like an oppressive army. Theses are the flat, open stretches of farmland between Dorset and Hampshire, which conjure the memory of Hardy’s villages. Telegraph poles and wires trace the boundary between earth and sky, infinitely delicate and vulnerable as matchsticks beneath the electric force of nature. However, hope and optimism sit on the horizon, where a pearly crescent of light gleams beyond the threat of storm and destruction. The power of the natural world is conjured in this perceptive work, only to be undercut by its own cyclical nature.
