Church Street,
Lyme Regis,


This is the Cabinet’s second ‘graphic novel ballad’. The ballad tells the story of British painter Paul Nash and Eileen Agar’s affair in Dorset in the mid-30’s through their relationship with the Purbeck world which enchanted them; objects washed up on the beach they endowed with personalities, strange rock shapes with animistic qualities, fossils like ghosts embedded in the ancient strata, a landscape made surreal both by quarrying and the remnants of ancient geology. This encounter with Eileen in Dorset represents one of the most significant waymarks in Nash’s journey to a new form of painting that would use the dreamlike juxtaposition of continental surrealism to bring together a host of animistic objects from the English landscape.
