FRED - the annual art invasion of Cumbria went live from 28th September - 14th October, where artists from around the globe created new work in some of England's most spectacular landscapes in what has become Europe's largest annual festival of site-specific art.
This latest earthwork drawing was made from stones and rocks found in the surrounding hillside near several disused granite quarries at Threlkeld, at the foot of Clough Head a peak of the Helvellyn range of mountains. The granite boulders were lime-washed using lime sourced locally at Shap. The drawing of Stones then emerged in response to the energy and rhythms of the land.
The piece measures c. 100ft x 100ft and can be seen from Castlerigg stone circle and from the A66 into Keswick from Penrith.
