Light Over West Sands, Fife, Scotland. Digital C Type Print Size: 841 x 1189 mm.
Following in the footsteps of centuries of Scottish landscape artists I have been exploring Fife with a large format camera before Scotland becomes independent again. The landscape changes so dramatically even within a minute and so as an artist I have had to step back and connect in a spiritual way with the land and the sky waiting for everything to come together in my minds eye.
As I stood on the beach I watched the RAF warplanes from the nearby airbase conducting war games in the sky. They they all landed for lunch and the clouds began to drift inland as if gestured by the sun. The sun then picked out the detail including the bunting I placed in the landscape which was made for my friend Amelia’s 19th birthday by her Devonshire Mum, Jane. Copyrighted Image.
