A study of the underground mines of Cornwall, and the way they have underpinned Cornwall, the men who made the industry work. The work highlights the bravery of the men who worked in the mines, and the structures that are hidden from everyday sight. Accidents and loss of life were almost expected. The timbers and the shapes they form are individual to each working.
These paintings have metal leaf to remind us of the tin and copper ore being mined in this very masculine environment.
These mining artworks would make an unusual birthday gift for him or great gifts for him on valentines day. Made in Cornwall they celebrate Cornish heritage.
