Inspired by Osea, an inhabited island in the estuary of the River Blackwater, Essex. Access to Osea Island is via an ancient causeway built by the Romans. The enigmatic tidal road opens at every low tide for a period of 4 hours when cars can be driven across. I wanted to capture the energy and motion of the tide in the application of the paint, fluid and expressive mark making and bold colour palette.
