outfalls: poems and drawings, Harriet Tarlo and Judith Tucker, Wild Pansy Press, 2018. Edition 250. 148 x 105 mm. 34 pages.

Outfalls is a collaboration between Judith Tucker (drawings) and Harriet Tarlo (texts) reflecting on the life of the Louth Navigation in North East Lincolnshire. They first encountered the canal at its outfall at Tetney Haven on the Humber Estuary. From here they traced the canal back to Louth and became fascinated in its past, present and future, the people who live there, and its blend of natural and cultural features which, in microcosm, reflect many global and national issues related to place, environment and heritage

behind land: poems and paintings, Harriet Tarlo and Judith Tucker, Wild Pansy Press, 2015. Edition 100. 105 x 296 mm 16 pages

This book comprises a selection of paintings and poems from the series: behind land, and is an extension of a collaborative commission funded by the Arts Council and curated by Linda Ingham as Excavations and Estuaries. The work responds to a part of the North East Lincolnshire coast that might be considered the epitome of a landscape in which the human and non-human are interconnected and entwined. It is a place that invites questions about what is natural, and what is unnatural.

Between 2011 and 2013 , poet Harriet Tarlo and visual artist Judith Tucker collaborated on a series of walks, drawings and poems around the cloughs and becks of the Holme River in West Yorkshire. Their work conveys a sense of the symbiotic shaping of land and water both by each other and by human interventions, as well as their own conversations with the landscape and with each other. This book contains drawings and poems from this project.
