Tol’s title is Cornish, and translates as ‘hole’ taken from the Mên-an-Tol (holed stone). The sculpture unites three women for whom Penwith had a strong emotional charge. One Mên-an-Tol image is taken from Daphne du Maurier's book ‘Vanishing Cornwall’ 1967. The photograph was taken by her son. Virginia Woolfe’s novel ‘To the Lighthouse’ lies behind the choice of the image of Godrevy, which mirrors the forms of the Mên-an-Tol. Finally the form of the glass structure is taken directly from Hepworth’s ‘Itea’ print from the Aegean Suite. The sculpture conveys my understanding of the landscape that I travel between my home and my studio. My understanding of this landscape is tinted by the works of these woman.
