Over the last eight years Artist Evewright has been developing the Walking Drawings project, a series of live experimental art installations involving the public. Evewright creates large-scale drawings on selected ‘sandscapes’ along the British coastline using an old- fashioned tractor, rotavator and rake. These tremendous shapes are then brought to life when members of the public and horseriders are invited to walk their lines to engage with his art.
His most recent installation, which took place in September 2010 on Silecroft Beach in Cumbria, was poetically captured on film and photographed. This visual record forms his exhibition Walking Drawings: Across the Estuaries – showcasing two stunning short films and a series of photographic prints.
