When I was very young, my younger sister was quite sickly, so I would spend many hours alone in my "imaginary world" creating stories with bits of things rescued from my parents’ home in the sand outside in the garden. Deciding to do a series of still lives I felt the need to tell stories. So Sand Stories took shape.
Anthony Harris: “I use the landscape as a metaphor. My work explores the complexity of the terrain in ways that challenge the viewers' own boundaries and conventions of romanticising something, in the present, or may occur in the future - moving beyond our preconceived and comfortable human perceptions. These landscapes hold within them aspects other than pure nature - the panorama is composed of elements that bear witness to change and evolution."
