‘Caroline Ross sources art materials from a world that ended a thousand years ago’ – Dark Mountain 11.
Dark Mountain 13 is out this May and I have painted the cover. Have a look here for a short essay and great pictures of the great rocks on which I worked.
News: I am excited to say that I will be co-teaching Wild Twins again in May 2019 with Paul Kingsnorth, a week for rewilding your art and / or your writing on this island on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland. Our May 2018 course was a grand event with sunshine as well as a stormy night, wonderful walks, ancient ochres and songs around the fire. We’ll be making everything we need from scratch- inks, books, paints, pens, and responding to each other, to nature and to ancient stories.

10 of my small works made in natural pigments on deerskin parchment illustrate Dark Mountain 12 – Sanctum. For the cover of issue 13, I used ochres hand-dug and refined into raw pigments from Clearwell Caves, as well as Italian red ochre, Oxfordshire’s hangman’s ochre, and English charcoal.
‘The Illustrated Wake’ with my drawings for Paul Kingsnorth’s superb book is now available for crowdfunding at Unbound.com. Please have a look at the film we have made that tells you about the project and the materials.
