group exhibition with another 3 artists of different disciplines
Santa Eularia, Ibiza, 3.-31.September 2021
Following the birds of Scotland with my camera I intended to show them in their natural habitat, free to roam earth, sea and air in perfect symbiosis with their surroundings, the exhibition contains 3 series:
This body of work shows birds straying from the flock, highlighted in red. Visualising the efforts of taking individual direction – much like humans, standing out from the crowd, attracting attention – these images raise questions and unease as the visual order is broken, showing the juxtaposition of the collective versus the individual.
Investigating visual analogies between music and birds – as the flocks are sitting on electricity wires, looking like scores, with tiny variations sending ripples through the group until they are being chased away by seagulls – a crescendo – just to return again, settling on the lines in a different position.
stand alone images of birds finding refuge for hatching their eggs, walking the grassy slopes looking for food or flying freely above beautiful landscapes
