We are from somewhere else. We are Dutch, Anglo Burmese, married to Barbados, live part time in France, descended from Water Gypsies, and hail from Leicester; the once-hidden resting place of that existential protagonist Richard the Third.
How we came to be in Cornwall is a diverse and sinuous tale. How much of that really has to do with the Light and not some Absurdist bend of fate: none of us are saying! We know what the facts are, but that’s not the same thing as Truth.
What is truth? To quote that notorious aristo and recordist of the Paris Bawd – Tréclau – we “try to do what is true, and not [what is] ideal“.
We are six artists.
We live in Cornwall.
We are fastj&m.
