ORNITHOLOGY |   The series titled ‘Ornithology’ was created sporadically over a period of five years between 1994-1999, and foregrounds this symbolism through the technique of staged constructed tableaux orchestrated before, and recorded in front of, a large-format camera. Photographed with a 10”x8” De Vere camera onto transparency film, these constructed works use the foil of ornithological painting toward a symbolic narrative concerned with the social landscape of Scotland during that time. Also the role of art/photography, and creativity, within that milieu; that is, social commentary presented within a kind of ‘urban Audubon’ visual style.
