Ghost Nets 4


From a series of drawings for the exhibition Hallsands Revisited.
Ghost nets are derelict fishing gear that has been lost, dumped or abandoned. The image is initially
benign and ethereal, floating gracefully through the open sea. However, a more malign consequence
becomes apparent. A perpetual moving killing zone, they are ubiquitous in our oceans and a major
cause of plastic pollution.
The nets are hand-drawn in ink over ink and charcoal.
