When a couple of weeks ago I went to the Irish Museum of Modern Art to visit this exhibition, I was happy to see that Donald Urquhart’s artwork had not disappeared yet.

recurring line 1024x671 In IMMAs grounds [Part Two]This work, whose title is Recurring Line: North/South, is made from a long line of snowdrops that, as winter ends, blooms in the meadow. Once a year nature redraws the line for a few weeks. If you miss it, you have to wait for another year.

I believe Earl Gray proved to be a very nice companion. I loved its contrasty results that seem to give a more vintage look to my images.

Don’t you think that this last photo on the right seems borrow from one of those horror films from the 1930s?

    Urquhart’s work is beautiful, it reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy’s.

      I seem to remember I came across some of his works a few years ago while wandering in England. I’ll check my photo archive to see if there is something in there…
