Ian Collins: Transient and Unexpected Beauty

Sun 1 - Mon 2 Apr 2018

600mins

Capturing the marks and signs we leave in the landscape, these photographs are a response to weathered or decomposing surfaces illuminated by light of a certain quality, at a particular moment.

Entry: Free

This exhibition is the result of a search for harmony, beauty or monumentality, usually in neglected or marginal places or perhaps in the remains of utilitarian structures. The photographs were taken in Scotland over the last four years and most are a response to weathered or decomposing surfaces as they are illuminated by light of a certain quality at a particular moment; they also attempt to capture the marks or signs we leave in the landscape, especially those that are accidental, ephemeral or transient.
