Work Print Series Water of Leith

Water of Leith

This series references the use of the blueprint to document the natural world, extending the analytical approach to include material discarded by our own species. It juxtaposes found man-made items branded with often-recognizable logos next to commonplace but less frequently identified flowers that grow around us in a city. The series was developed for an exhibition at Coburg House Gallery, located a stone’s throw from the ‘Water of Leith’ in Edinburgh. The ‘Water of Leith Walkway’ follows a river through the city and is a route popular for various outdoor leisure pursuits.
