  2. FMP - Stuart Franklin on the metaphor of landscape.

    20 Aug 2019

    Whilst I have been developing my work and creating images, delving down into the complex research of M.E, I realise that my background and earlier degree in Geology has made an impact within the project 'Mapping1'. Not so much to draw on the geomorphology of the land and its outlines, but…

    Burke L. 2019.
