WET KALE SHINGLE. Cogden Nature Reserve beach, Chesil, Dorset.
WET KALE SHINGLE. Cogden Nature Reserve beach, Chesil, Dorset. 2016.
A correspondence became evident between rounded shingle and the droplets of dew and rainwater held on the surface of the Sea Kale leaves…they run like mercury. Sea Kake is so adapted to this exposed environment…deep tap roots, waterproofed leaves storing moisture and holding water in a way that guides it down toward the roots…after flowering and seeding the dried flower heads travel in gales and propagate like tumbleweed. Remarkable stuff. Delicious to eat too.
34x74x4cm deep. framed size.
20x60x2cm recovered drift wood support cut and drilled to add relief…
