The Verges project is part of an ongoing body of work looking at roadside verges, those hugely important corridors for wildlife that cross the town and countryside. It is in response to the 'cut later, cut less' initiative to stop councils cutting the wildflowers before the seeds have set so that we have enough wildflowers/weeds to act as pollinators to bees and other insects, our own health depends on them. These more abstract landscapes were painted around the Dales and Lakes and are intended to bring to mind the flashes of colour, movement and structure we see as we whizz by in our cars.
