Dead Flowers in Glass – Alchemical Windows
Dead Flowers in Glass, Beriedale, Orkney, 1984. (Printed 1985)
Platinum-palladium print on 100% cellulose paper (Van Gelder simili Japon) from original 18×24 cm negative.
This print was shown in my first solo exhibition in 1984, curated by Tessa Jackson, then director of Collins Gallery at Strathclyde University, Glasgow. I will always be indebted to her and to Thomas Joshua Cooper for their faith in, and support of this early work.
