Reviews

    Details

    Aileen Harvey is an artist whose work focuses on the experience of place.

    She uses photography, drawing and writing to engage with landscapes, especially the mountains of northwest Scotland. She will be talking about the importance that walking has on her practice, based upon the way it places us in the landscape and shapes our perceptions. Her work aims to draw out the specific qualities of a particular place at a particular time, and walking is a part of this, bringing movement and the subjective experience of a particular human body. Aileen will also discuss the non-visual aspects of images, and how drawings and photographs can be alike. Her work borrows from the landscape - sometimes materials such as pigments, stones or drawing sticks, or else systems, hierarchies and patterns. She is interested in how people and places form one another.
