Jess woodrow trained at Cardiff (BA) and Bath (MA)
She lives and works in the black Mountains

The work on this site represents the last few years,
having moved back to live in the Mountains. A return to the source of life.
Mountains are at once imposing and indifferent, elusive and majestic. They exude
a feeling of solidity and fluidity. The perfect paradox.

A ridge of stone
Exchanges with a water dawn
A whole perspective of forgetting,
Walls are gone

Stilled by the connection of uncertain distance,
The Mountain watches over me.
Tracks, water filled, shoot up into the sky
But miss the summit by miles

Here I could lie down and sleep
In the safe enclosure of this vast space
Where nothing ends where it seems to end.
And nothing moves away from me.
