About

‘The great sea has sent me adrift it moves me as the weed in a great river earth and the great weather move me have carried me away and move my inward parts with joy' '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, appearing on the road and becoming part of the work. Thorp's work often springs from his song and scriptwriting: Out at the limit he looks down at the precious stone He sees the seasons rolling on, into one And says if you see it clear then it's your home And this is your home…. In the winter so close to the ground In the cold blue light look what I found From carbon and water to such a fine mind Look what I found, in infinite surround Look what I found, in you……. Thorps's other works resonate with his ongoing love of the picaresque, the road movie, the emerging story. Polaroids are the perfect vehicle to capture this poetry of the moment, never to be repeated.
