Breaking Rocks

Breaking Rocks was drawn on the beach at Ty Croes, near Aberffraw, Anglesey, yet it references Nelson Mandela’s work breaking rocks in the quarry on Robben Island during his 27-year incarceration. The pebbles were collected on this beach overlooking Cribinau Island which is a tiny tidal island on which St Cwyfan, fondly known as “The church in the sea”, has withstood the elements since 1294.
