For over 20 years Tony Plant has made work to be washed away. His works are as simple as coloured water, a track through snow, or a group of painted rocks – left to nature and passersby. These Guerrilla style installations, above and below the tidal zones of some of the most exposed coastal locations in the land, are purely ephemeral, and may be gone within a few waves, a tide or a storm, deliberately made to disappear.

For over 20 years Tony Plant has created temporary, ephemeral works. Through subtle interventions he is able to tangibly alter the space within each of the works, ensuring each has its own presence.
Like his contemporaries who graduated from Chelsea school of Art in 1990 he continually challenges the traditional understanding of artistic production by taking art out of the studio and into the everyday world. He often works in the margins, and through his use of 'inquisitive experience', creates works that are quiet, transient, simple but powerful.
