"It’s confused many viewers! As the tide receded and the river level dropped, the water in the sand bank drained away carving temporary and unusual channels which looked strange, in that they flowed at right angles to the direction of the river. The mountains of Eryri can be seen in the distance."
"Strange Bank" - © Glyn Davies 2005
Amazingly this is the original A1 print which was first shown at my major exhibition "Celtic Connections" at the Oriel Ynys Môn, and is one of just two of these ever sold, (no.2 went first, to the University of Wales in Aug 2007) even though in it's time has been one of the most talked about images in the gallery, everyone has been fascinated by the confusing shapes and dynamic composition.
It was therefore a real delight when Ms Douglas from Oldham came in today and immediately fell in love with it. I have never wanted to remove the print from the frame as I felt it was an important image for that time in my work. I really am happy that someone else shared my interest and intrigue about this wonderful Anglesey location.
