On being inspired by inspirations

I am working my way through the compilation of the catalogue for Strands Of Time – only two weeks to go folks – and ,and this happens every time, am getting drawn into the written statements . I find that it adds another way to look at a piece and am amazed at the sources of inspiration to make them. For example I now now where Midge Gourlay got the pink and purple colours for her Spanish Horses piece and where Liza Green collected  the spent bullets for her brilliant anti-war piece Spent Forces.

And do you know why Rosemary Campbell uses boats in her work or what inspired one of our student prize winners, Shan Press, to create her final year course work?

No answers given but if you come along to the show – 2 – 23 July, Edinburgh Palette –  you’ll find out . Simply check out the catalogue. Looking forward to seeing you there.Midge Gourlay, Horses

I told you – pink and purple horses!
