For the final show here in Dufftown I printed and framed Stand Fast, one of my photo assemblages or pods as a large (44" x 48") print. It was a great way to work out how these pieces will look this size and in a show. Tune in to see more of these in my gallery show of this work in NYC next year. Below is the piece of text I wrote to leave in the gallery with the piece.
Combining letters makes words and strings of words communicate ideas, inspire through poetry or simply entertain. To a similar end, using the building blocks of different images in this photo assemblage allows me to share and describe the exploration of my artist residency in Scotland. The individual photographs represent both literally and lyrically the making of whisky at Glenfiddich, the landscape of the Highlands and the personal space around which I have spent my last 3 months.
