News Stories From Peter Watson Paintings

STANDING PILLARS, RAF BEMPTON

Concrete pillars on the cliff top at Bempton which are part of the remaining surface structures of the RAF Station built in the 1950s.

These surreal pillars standing in a field at Bempton give a sinister 'Cold War' atmosphere to the area and seem incongruous in their situation. They remind me of ancient standing stones at Stonehenge and Avebury where their purpose is uncertain and mysterious.

ULROME BEACH

Concrete sea defences stranded on the beach.

These concrete blocks were originally used to support the crumbling cliffs of soft boulder clay but over the years the sea has encroached behind the defences and left a row of cylinders stranded on the beach. Their original purpose has no use but they now appear as an organic man-made sculpture constantly being washed over by the tides strangely reflecting the action of the waves in their fluid shape. I am reminded of the work of Paul Nash who used geometric forms in landscape settings in his surrealist paintings.
