I sent the description of this piece of work to the Gallery in an email after its completion. Originally a few sentences of prose, the email was briefly lost in the internet ether only to reappear in my editor’s inbox, rearranged by his computer into the format of a free-verse poem. Having never seen my original notes, he assumed this to be a first foray into the world of poetic expression; but for the sake of avoiding plagiarism, it should properly be attributed to modern technology.

‘Burren Belle’, by Email Provider

This assemblage speaks of the bare faced lie of the Burren, Co. Clare, Eire. Its limestone landscape pitted, routed, gouged, seemingly brutally inhospitable and yet, certain flora and fauna not only survive they can thrive. Succoured to sturdiness before decapitation by a scything wind, a stubborn limb, bone-bleached offers a finger-post for a Burren Belle.
Sid Burnard portraitSid Burnard was born in Brighton in 1948. Introduced to the art of beachcombing by his Romany grandmother, Sid learnt to appreciate the beauty of nature from an early age. His time at Bristol Guild of Applied Arts gave him a profound understanding of visual arts and crafts and allowed him to put his personal vision into practice.

He is now based in Borth near Aberystwyth in Wales, where the flotsam and jetsam from the nearby sea is his only source of materials. Working with found objects, nothing is changed - simply introduced to one another. His driftwood pieces, usually birds, boats or mythical beasts, are full of his passion, integrity and wonderful humour.
