2019 StoneScape - Into the Flow

2019 StoneScape - Into the Flow

from 15.00


I take inspiration from a 400 million year old journey cast in stone. Growing up in Caithness, I was surrounded by the county’s flagstone, it’s heritage, and the vast natural landscape composed during it’s formation. I see sky, sea and land in the stone’s colours, textures and gradients. Through digital processes, I create landscapes using photographs of Caithness stone captured from various sites including harbours, beaches, paving slabs and ancient standing stones. Through my work I aim to encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of the connection between people and land.


T H E E X P E R I E N C E . . . I captured this piece while onboard the Hamnavoe ferry as it departed Stromness on its return to Scrabster in Caithness. The beautifully still water of Clestrain Sound reflected the open sky as we caught a glimpse into Scapa Flow. The lighthouse of Graemsay stands proud to the right as darkness falls suggesting a calm before the storm.

T H E S T O N E . . . Textures used to create the sky in this StoneScape were sourced from the edge of a standing stone at the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney. The land and sea textures were captured from the edge of a boulder on Thurso Beach in Caithness representing the geolocial and archaeological similarities shared by Orkney and Caithness.

I see sky, sea and land in the colours, textures and gradients of Caithness flagstone paving slabs and drystone walls. Through digital processes, I capture photographs of the county’s stone using them to reconstruct original photographs of landscapes.
