Tor De Moor - Dartmoor Original Textile Artwork

Tor De Moor - Dartmoor Original Textile Artwork

£395.00

'Tor De Moor' is a marriage of Dartmoor textures and colours. Semi-abstract in style, it's purpose is to capture the wild terrain, the natural shapes and seasonal colour of this amazing landscape. The colours lend themselves to an autumnal piece but in truth these colours are often seen all year round on Dartmoor. 

I am so fortunate to live near Dartmoor and for many years I lived in a village on the moor.  My memories of this time, as well as my love of this wild open space, influenced this piece. 

I've tried to capture as many characteristics of the moors as I could. The granite rocks, the misty tors in the distance, a clapper bridge with a trickling stream, and of course, the crispy curly ferns and bracken. All quintessential Dartmoor.  

My other great memory of living on the Moors was the fun of Letterboxing!! This activity originated on Dartmoor – in fact it started in 1854!  Hikers on the moors began to leave a letter or postcard inside a box along the trail, hence the name "letterboxing". The next person to discover the site would collect the postcards and post them.  The excitement of discovering those little tins!

It really is one of those pieces that has to be seen for the textures to be fully appreciated. The non reflective glass really gives it an unglazed appearance, which I think is essential with work like this. No matter how hard I try, textiles are difficult to really see properly on a screen! 

This original measures 25 x 19" and is framed in a contemporary white wooden frame and glazed with anti uv non reflective glass. The textures can be fully appreciated this way and of course, it is most unlikely to ever fade. 

Delivery within the UK is free. Please do get in touch if you require a quotation for overseas carriage. Collection from my studio in Devon is also an option.
