Footprints.

In June 2015 Gippsland couple, Russell and Carol Monson walked the iconic ‘West Highland Way’ in Scotland.

This 152 kilometre walking trail through craggy highlands, past vast lochs and across wild moors has inspired Russell and Carol to pool their talents in a photographic, textile and mixed media exhibition.

 Russell’s photography is designed to inspire through the use of his and the camera’s eye rather than digitally enhanced work.

Carol is developing her photographic images for use in creative quilting and works that layer a range of fabrics.

 Previously the vibrant colours and light of the Australian outback have been the inspiration for a joint exhibition.

 This new exhibition, Footsteps, is a particular challenge because the colours and light of Scotland are often more subtle and diffused than the stark, sunlit colours of the ‘Red Centre’

Nov 27th to Dec 30th

Opening Dec 12th 3 to 5pm.

Russell and Carol can be contacted at rmonson@dcsi.net.au

Here is a small video to accompany the exhibition
