Simon Carter and Jevan Watkins Jones: Shore Lines

Galleries

Untitled, 2021, (charcoal on paper), Carter, Simon and Watkins Jones, Jevan © the artists.

Imagine two drawings by two artists drifting across a five-mile stretch of salt-water, merging and morphing on the surface as they meet.

Artists Simon Carter and Jevan Watkins Jones collaborate in this collection of charcoal drawings inspired by their shared experience of the Essex and Suffolk coastline, and explore ideas of territory and individual experience.

For more than two years the drawings of the artists have conceptually crossed the coastal routes of Essex & Suffolk and now, for the first time, their hands come together in these new large-scale charcoal drawings. 

The sequence begins on the shorelines of Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex ending at Landguard Point, Suffolk, where the artists respectively call home.

Displayed across the walls on which the charcoals feature are two vinyl wrap drawing duets. The left image, predominantly a broken seawall under The Naze cliffs and on the right, the cranes of Felixstowe Port.
