Artist comment - 

I look into the distance every morning as the sun rises out of the sea, shining on a big cruise ship anchored off the coast. What have we done? People's confident lives are undermined. The habit of travel has proved a mainculprit, and once again we are an island at the end of long voyages by sea. Pomegranates were once painted in tombs, a symbol of the cycle of vegetative life, the fertility of the goddess and then a season in the underworld.
