Turn of Tide

My ‘Turn of Tide’ rug is about a special place I go. There’s a pause out in the bay between the ebb and flow of tide, about 15 minutes maybe; time stands still until the magnetic pull tilts the enormous body of the Atlantic Ocean back towards my feet. I have to squint in the sun towards Little Ross Island where the water will inevitably come from then, as the river pushes against the sea the water comes in an upside down V threatening to engulf me. Little Ross looses focus in my urgency towards land. Still, I keep going back to experience the beingness with Little Ross symbolising this for me, symbolising me. In ‘Turn of Tide’ I wanted to share the life energy of this place and time, the light, the insight, the urge towards more raw beauty symbolised by stylised water trickling in an upside down V to crown Little Ross and me.
