Solvitur Ambulando

A literal translation of the latin phrase 'solvitur ambulando' (attributed to St Jerome) would be, 'it is solved by walking.' Go for a walk, and everything seems easier. Solvitur Ambulando has become a theme in my current work & an injunction to myself to get out and walk more.

This letterpress collage image was exhibited at The Museum in the Park in Stroud in September 2014 in a show called The Art of Walking. The exhibition was part of the Laurie Lee centenary celebrations, so the map in my piece centres on Lee's home village of Slad & The Woolpack Inn.
