‘Like Time It Waits For Nobody’


Three-colour screenprint created for Yorkshire Sculpture Park to celebrate the 2014 Le Tour Yorkshire.


‘July 5th 2014. Like time, it waits for nobody. Once the race has started it thunders on doesn’t stop for anyone or anything. But that one summer day in the space that lay between us, somewhere between sky and dale we achieved the impossible, we made time stop and for one delicious moment we held it in our hands as a gentle breeze caressed our faces and the hot sun made our bodies glow. We breathed time in as deep as we could and held it in inside us for the longest possible moment before we let it loose on its relentless way again. We looked up at the clouds and thought how tiny and insignificant we must look from up there and it didn’t bother us at all’
