Llanberis is a body of work that explores the visual impact of vast post-industrial landscapes. These giant quarries, now derelict, remind us of the working relationship between man and the land. It is very often a one-sided exchange in which once valuable mineral resources have been plundered to satisfy market demand, the site is promptly abandoned to the forces of entropy and decay. The visual scars that are left behind are dramatic and melancholy, a sublime battlefield of industrial monoliths and scattered detritus that punctuate a vista created by much slower tectonic forces.
