Sea Wall, Dymchurch, 2018

Nash was impressed by the vast sea wall at Dymchurch, a man-made structure designed to protect the Marsh from flooding from the sea. For him, the wall became emblematic of the continuous interaction between land and sea. Nash nearly drowned as a child and wrote that he associated the sea with ‘cold and cruel waters, usually in a threatening mood, pounding and rattling along the shore’.

'The thing looked at me suddenly like a great inundating sea, a vast tide moving across the fields, the breakers rearing up and crashing on the plain and then nothing moves, it is not water or even ice; it is something static and dead. By moonlight this waning moon one could swear they began to move and twist and turn as they did in the air'. - Paul Nash
