Meini Hirion are works created by Nature and time.

       To the object the surrounding landscape is important, for the painting the inner landscape is everything.

    Over millions of years sediments have settled and petrified, the Earth metamorphosed, ignited and cooled creating a highly decorative structure. On this living organisms have taken root, lived and died enriching the patina.
    Recently in this history our ancestors selected pieces of this natural symphony and in so doing established an object worthy of attention which would then be moved, perhaps modelled, and repositioned sympathetically with reason. Looking back we can see that these stones in the landscape are the earliest remains of our first marks on our world. The first call after we settled to those that follow :   "Here I am: Look at me!"
    There was as is now an understanding of the reverential, created in the selection as special.
The focus of this reverence could be for the Land and the ancestors it nourished, a permanent reminder for wisdom passed on. This culture is still present today, we continue to look at the landscape and these works of our predecessors with wonder.

     The paintings are composed of an encapsulated form where nature is released to grow and dry over time leaving a deposition which could be described as representations of the standing stones and megaliths of Britain.
