Roger Thorp ‘Fountain Road’ – Millennium St Ives
‘Fountain Road’ envelopes us in Thorp’s chosen landscapes, exposing our proximity to nothingness, showing us a way of seeing the world, a finite perspective of things. The works strive to create a sense of humility and wonder and to question what is important.
In the ‘Fountain Project’ the viewer is given the opportunity to create their own melody using the light harp which in turn adds another unique layer to the image. In Dwell 1.85:1 the viewer becomes immersed in the landscape.
has sent me adrift
it moves me
as the weed in a great river
earth and the great weather
have carried me away
and move my inward parts with joy’
