Walking Songs
Andrew Norris
Croatia, 2006

The purchase of a piece of land simply entitles one to care for it and improve it before passing it onto the next generation. This small piece of land, in the village of Gornje Bukovlje in Croatia, became an immediate and rich source of inspiration from the moment we took over its guardianship. For Walking Songs I chose, in the manner of Edward Thomas’s wanderings and observations, to focus on the experiences gleaned while walking the same route for a year around a couple of fields. The melodic line of much of the local song seems to be reflected in the undulating terrain around our fields and meadows and where my text can also find its counterpart in the lyrics extolling the beauty of the nature around us.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
