Exhibitions / MOSTYN | Jamie Barnes Sea Structures [Institutional Leadership]

05.10.2019 to 26.01.2020

Inspired his explorations of coastal paths around Wales, Anglesey, Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland. A curious set of accompanying sea structures started to appear in Jamie’s work, not only the obvious structures such as lighthouses, but also more unusual, such as orientation beacons, transmitters and glowering power stations.

Drawing underpins Jamie’s practice, transforming his line drawing through the magic of the aquatint etching process. He values etching for the quality of line it can produce, its depth of texture and for the random marks picked up by the process which he often chooses to preserve.
