It’s been far too long since I’ve been active on the blog. So many things have happened that there is too much to tell in one post. So I will get myself going with a barrage of visual inspiration that I’ve been gathering in the past few months. My work has been transitioning from the sculpture and installation back to photography and video lately. I find it easier to think in images, sound and text than objects or spaces at the moment. So instead of trying force work that is material-based, I’m going to go with the flow and release the image-based side of my practice again.
I’ve been researching film poems and cinematic non-fiction, the essay film and the personal camera. In my readings, I came across Agnes Varda. I remember that a film of hers was playing at the Glasgow Film Theatre when I was in second year at art school, but I never got around to seeing it. Now I wish I had! Varda is a fascinating woman with such an innovative approach to cinema. Can’t wait to see more of her work.
