Wish You Were Here

Art works by students at Taigh Chearsabhagh, Western Isles, UK
and The University of the Arts Art Education Department.
In this project, a collaged element is incorporated into the piece as a point of departure, similar to William Wegman's postcard paintings.

Hi there,
Thank you for your generous comments on my work.I like the idea that artwork takes on a life of it's own once it is out there, like a source of energy, generating multiple meaning.Before I make any art work, I do lots of research into many things,then try and simplfy, so any one work ,even if it is very miminal, is informed by several areas.Your comments on the flower were fascinating and informative. In my work the young lady is wearing an amarylis.It is her favourite flower. Every year since childhood, she has received an amarylis bulb in her Christmas stocking which she plants on New Years Day.Both interested in art history ,we had been looking at Olympia by Eduard Manet,and here's the thing, she automatically changed the flower to the opposite side from the girl in Manet's work.I love that connections, relationships and meaning are created across time,culture and distance by details in artwork. No matter what place,or even time you are in.

Because of your note, I rushed to find an image of Manet's Olympia and found an interesting entry about it on Wikipedia. Interesting because it says that the flower over the left ear is an orchid. Doesn't it look more like an amarylis!

I wonder, if when Victorine was lying ,posing for Manet ,that she would have imagined that two people,separated by thousands of miles, would be discussing the position and type of the flower in her hair over 140 years later.Perhaps it was her favourite flower?Perhaps she kept it and pressed it?I wonder what she would have made of it all? It sends shivers down my spine......

Thank you for your interesting comments on my blog, Giorgio Morandi was an artist I had looked at though retrospectively, I use objects as metaphor a lot at the moment. I’m sorry about the title Linn, it is Scottish Gaelic for generational or a generation.

Linn, leen, n. f. a generation, age, ministration, incumbency or time in office, race, offspring; family; ri linn do sheanmhair, i.e. during the time of your grandmother, ie long, long ago; is iomadh linn a chuir thu romhad, you sent many a generation before you; deireadh linn, youngest, last of a family; anns na linntean deireanach, in the latter days; o linn gu linn, from generation to generation,

It is strange how we come to the same place, but down different paths

I hear so many different kinds of music when I look at the image of my home. My mood is often displayed through music, so depending on how I am feeling, the music that I play on my record player conveys that feeling.
