The use of the black in the composition is to emphasise the journey in to light the lane on the hill fort offers. The enclosed tree tunnel gives way to sunlight but at the same time it protects.

Whilst the work is dark in places, I hope it also brings light and demonstrates how there is always redemption – a way through, just as there is through the drovers’ roads of the Somerset landscape. With sublime beauty and elation there is also terror and darkness but the combination actually brings comfort, understanding and the vision of a way forward.
