Down by the rocky shore

Down by the rocky shore

Mari Girling

The image of two girls in contrasting dresses by the seashore reflects my upbringing and my relationship with my sister. The title and the border derive from a poem by William Allingham which used to make my sister cry. The girls hair and the waves of the sea are intended to be intermingled and inextricable. My work is always figurative. I often use sea themes: I was brought up at a lifeboat station. I admire the paintings of Paula Rego which draw on folk tale and use mysterious monumental figures. Recently I have worked with children in several Church of England schools to produce windows incorporating their ideas.
