Severn Bridge is a giclée print from Sheona Beaumont's series 'Bristol Bridges'. Produced in an unlimited edition, the series presents the familiar landmarks of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Severn Bridge, and the Second Severn Crossing (since renamed the Prince of Wales Bridge) in surprising and innovative ways.
Here only the uppermost parts of the Severn Bridge's towers are glimpsed, emerging out of the morning mist which has settled over the estuary. A haze of blue reflects an almost seamless meeting of sky and water, a sharp contrast to a time-lapse piece from another series by Sheona, The Parting of the Severn Sea.
Printed with Epson lightfast inks on Epson Heavy Weight Matte Paper (167gsm) or Epson Archival Matte Paper (192gsm).
Sold unframed and unmounted, will be rolled for delivery.
Signed, unlimited edition.
Meet Sheona Beaumont
Sheona Beaumont is a visual artist and writer based in the South West. Born in Bristol, and having lived there for 20 years, her work and research explore the ways in which photography reveals more than just the obvious - the emotional, spiritual and personal connections of our lives and loves.
She particularly enjoys working with the capacity of manipulated digital photography to confuse and enhance our ways of looking at things, producing beautifully kaleidoscopic images.
Her award-winning work has been exhibited widely in Bristol, as well as at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and in national tours to universities and cathedrals. She also pursues research into the history and theory of photography's power to illuminate, working amongst other things as a Visiting Research Fellow at King's College London, and blogging regularly about her practice and research together.
