Building between Tides


Julie Brook


In my early thirties I wished to understand my own artistic language better. I chose to live on an uninhabited coastline on the west coast of Jura, North West Scotland, a five-hour walk across moorland. I wanted live in and study the landscape in depth, to discover how I would respond to this environment and how it would influence me over time. To be in solitude. The idea had come fully formed to me when walking and camping the previous year. Taking shelter from a storm I found a cliff arch of cathedral-like proportions and slept the night there, pitching my tent in the lee of its east wall. On waking I knew I would come to live here to work.
