Winter samphire is from an ongoing series of Dark Marsh paintings of the pioneering salt marsh plants of the Humberston Fitties, Tetney Marsh area.  The series consider plants that are both vulnerable to sea level rise, but that also help to protect the land from flooding. The work is intended to be seen in relation to the series of Night Fitties work. Together the two series explore human and more-than-human worlds in microcosm and juxtaposition, touching on the play of light, tide and colour, uncanny transformations after dark, and notions of vulnerability, occupation, resilience and reclamation.
