Regarding the Frame, 2013 (selected images)
I finished my Visual Arts and Rural Community residency at Highgreen, in North Tyne, Norththumberland, with an exhibition in August 2013.
Exploring the local Tarset landscape, sites of historic mining and local economies. These have been and continue to be ways of managing and processing the rural landscape, similar to the ways that processes and materials are vital parts of image making. Exposing the hidden marks and scars from past uses and interactions that present, but hiddebelow the present interaction by tourisms. The exhibition draws on the traditional, chemical processes of photography from the Camera Obscura, analogue photography, flick books, print making, to digital photography and video. The images question the ways we views these working landscapes, the activities and encounters that have transformed and continue to shape the landscape; and the ways that geology and natural features dictate rural economies and activities.
