MAKING: Abandoned Farm, Scotland 2012 Fieldwork

Walking in Scotland in 2012 with friends, and came across an abandoned tenant farmer’s house. The sheep had taken over and trees grew from the chimney. Some furniture remained,
a shopping catalogue from the 1970’s and a sheep record book.

I was interested in exploring the dereliction and decay, and the echoes left behind that made connections with past lives.

Working with cyanotype in my studio, I  layered text and image onto tea plates, celebrating with ordinary domesticity the  re-viewing of what remained.
