‘Site’ 2011 archival oil on polyester canvas 177 x 776 cm.

Walking to the Marble Arch cave, in what is now a wilderness park, I came across a clearing in a forest and suddenly realised that somebody had once lived there distilling Eucalyptus oil. Scattered around the clearing were a few bits of rusted mesh, a kero tin, a depression in the ground where a shed had once stood and the stones of a basic hearth.  A bit further away part hidden by 20 years of regrowth, was a cast-iron boiler and some lengths of iron pipe. This is where the inspiration  for ‘site’ began.    John R Walker 2011
