This work is by local Cove artist Lesley Carruthers, whose abstract sculptures are produced by a largely intuitive process, often inspired by the landscapes and seascapes in which she lives and works.


Sea Fever

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide

Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
