St. Ives, Tate Gallery, 2009.LiteratureRatcliffe, 2007, ill. b/w pl. 41.The technique is superautomatism. Colquhoun refers to this work in The Living Stones: Cornwall. In a passage dealing with her response to the ancient landscape around Brane, Cornwall, she invokes the memory of St. Euny:Her strange powers, unused, seemed to hover about the grey hill, the unchannelled water, the rank leaf. A presence that had once been drawn back into soil, weather and plant, to become one of the ‘self-born mockers of man’s enterprise.’ I expressed in an ink drawing called Interior Landscape something of this semi-human entity who still pervades the place. (p. 58)St Euny was a fifth century saint who is said to have arrived in Cornwall from Ireland. His feast day is the first of February, the pagan festival of Imbolc. Imbolc is a time of purification and rebirth, traditionally celebrated at holy wells. St. Euny is usually regarded as a male, although in the passage quoted above, and in the drawing, Colquhoun clearly identifies her as female.Naturalistically drawn objects that include a well, a temple and pitchers of water are features that lie both on and within a more abstract landscape formed of curving sweeping arcs. The objects can be read as both sensory organs and as female body parts. The pitchers of water form eyes/breasts, the well both mouth and vagina. They are linked by lines that are paths, vessels and nerves.
