Monoprinted lines mark lines swum across the water like lines on a map, whilst the concentric circles of colour expand outwards like ripples. This abstract artwork was inspired by the pure joy of waking up early and diving into the clear water of the lake with no-one else around.
Swimming Lake Ullswater Art Project
The Artist believes that in order to see a landscape in a new way, you must experience it from a different perspective. Wild Swimming offers such a viewpoint, allowing you to “get under the skin of things” in the words of Roger Deakin. Swimming through this landscape provided this unique perspective for the Artist, and for the Artworks that resulted from this project map that experience.
The 12 km / 7.5-mile swim took 6 hours to complete, from Glenridding to Pooley Bridge.
