SCULPTURES

I have family who live in the Scottish Borders, near the Whiteadder River. It is a truly magical place and I love going to visit. On one of my many trips down to the river on a cold winters afternoon, I sat on the bank, the sun was at a low angle and perfectly silhouetted the grass and plants in front of me. I took a photograph, but like often happens, the image did not come close to capturing the real beauty which was in front of me.

A few weeks past and I kept thinking about that afternoon, I wanted to capture some of that beauty. This desire set me out on a journey to document the changing seasons on the wildflowers, plants and grasses to be found at a certain point on the banks of the Whiteadder River.

With this series of work, I want to capture the beauty of the mundane. Grasses, plants and flowers which are often overlooked when we are out for a walk. By taking them out of context and playing with scale, we see them in a new light. I want to encourage people to look down more, see what is by their feet and notice beauty in the everyday.
