OPEN – SOUTHAMPTON – Gillian Connor – Southampton City Art Gallery

Gillian Connor


Driftwood, flotsam and jetsam, 56cm x 61cm

Peregrine is a celebration of all the powerful tugs that over the years have been vital to the port of Southampton. She proudly displays the rose and colours of Southampton and has a variety of details gleaned from various tugs throughout the docks history.

Created using hand tools and inspired by the vast array of driftwood, plastic and metal collected from the beaches and harbours of the South coast. Each detail such as an anchor, a lantern or life boat may be crafted from several components, each one being a little work of art in its own right.
