|"Cadernid Amrywiol" Nant Gwrtheyrn - Buy HERE|
Cadernid Amrywiol is from my year long project "Y Swyngyfaredd" (The Enchantment) about Nant Gwrtheyrn on the North Wales coast, which became a book and major exhibition, launched at the WMC in Cardiff. This actual print was first shown at the Wales Millennium Centre, then the Gwynedd Museum, then at my own Oriel Glyn Davies Gallery.
From the book containing this image:
"After the harshness of the crags and cliff sides, the angular edges of the quarried levels and the tidy angles of the village itself, these large and beautifully rounded boulders seemed almost organic, and the way they spaced themselves evenly across the fine pebbles of the beach gave them a lifelike character of their own. It was hard to resist simply running my hands over the beautiful smooth curves, much as you would with a Henry Moore sculpture"
"Ar ôl gerwinder y creigiau a’r clogwyni, ar ôl ymylon onglog ponciau’r chwareli ac onglau taclus y pentref ei hun, ymddangosai’r clogfeini mawr, lluniaidd, bron yn bethau organig, ac ’roedd y modd ’roeddent wedi gosod eu hunain yn gyson ar wahân i’w gilydd ar draws cerrig mân y traeth yn rhoi iddynt eu cymeriad byw eu hunain. ’Roedd yn anodd peidio â gwneud dim ond rhedeg fy nwylo dros eu ffurfiau lluniaidd llyfn, fel y gwnaech â cherflun gan Henry Moore"
