As a student at Duncan of Jordanstone I documented a field at Carlogie near Carnoustie for a period of 15 months from September 2006 to December 2007. This has been a fascinating study of the area throughout the seasons, and with relevant historical research, has developed into a richly layered body of work. I enjoy printmaking and feel it lends another dimension to the photographs I take. My degree show also featured two films.
Embedded within the layers of geological, historical and societal change over time, my work explores the dialectic between memory and perception. I aim to present a personal experience that questions the viewer’s perception of landscape. The recognition of different timescales is implicit in the media used – photography, film and printmaking.
Here are some of my prints.
