Narcolepsy and the Cambridgeshire Fenlands. 'Half Sleep'

‘Days stretched calm and plain to the horizon, as though we rose out of peat and will dwindle in a rumour of fog’

Words by Emma Danes.

This is an acrylic painting on a high quality canvas frame. It belongs to a group of paintings I have called 'The Light Series'. This image is a personal reflection on landscape....the landscape that surrounds me, the fields and skies of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands. But no one should feel confined or constrained by a particular location; this painting has no topographical information, no trees, mountain peaks, hedgerows or rivers valleys to navigate. The only compass you have is your own experience, your own knowledge and personal history.

'Half Sleep' 80 x 80 cm Acrylic on Canvas

This is the universal language of horizontal and geometric divisions, dark and and sky in unequal partnership. It is an archetype, a diagram or blueprint, anchored and echoed in our upright stance, as we gaze outwards across the land. It is what we have always done. The Great Level of the Fens is the largest region of fen in eastern England: including the lower drainage basins of the River Nene and the Great Ouse, it covers about 500 square miles. It is also known as the Bedford Level, after Francis Russell, 4th Earl of Bedford, who headed the so-called adventurers in the 17th-century drainage in this area; his son became the first governor of the Bedford Level Corporation. In the 17th century, the Great Level was divided into the North, Middle and South Levels for the purposes of administration and maintenance.
