Rhiannon has grown up in Cornwall quietly observing the changes in landscape due to coastal erosion and the subsequent changes in architecture. She has become fascinated by the development plans for Cornwall’s future, and this has become the leading subject of her printmaking. She used existing development plans for Cornwall to create a parody for her own ludicrous development proposal for Praa Sands, where she lives. Included in this proposal is a conversation between local Facebook users who don’t exist… or do they?
“I’m intrigued and a little terrified by the speed in which the cliffs are crumbling away and shiny new holiday homes are appearing. I like to amuse myself by drawing absurd solutions to coastal erosion, where humans think they’re able to design their way out of the problem. Each house that I draw has a story behind it. I consider the incentive of the person who builds it, then the personality of the person who buys it, and the description that would sit below it on an estate agent advert. I have a lot of fun creating these scenes but there is always an underlying sense that this could eventually become reality…and that’s a distressing thought!”
