Re-decorated Cairn.

As part of the Retrace exhibition in Ullapool. I created a cairn made up of decorated pebbles for a trail around the village. This was then placed on the shore of Loch Broom off West Shore Street to view.

I realised that by making this a piece of work that people could interact with meant that it would not last that long in its intended place. I liked the idea of leaving the pebbles on the beach for people to do with as the please. A week after i installed the cairn it had all but gone from the beach.

Retrace: Graduate Show. An Talla Solais, Ullapool

Five recently graduated artists return to Ullapool to present an unmissable exhibition of collaborative and individual work. Tiffany Bottomley, Christine Morrison, Mary Somerville, Matt Stockl and Rhiannon Van Muysen first came together in 2006 during the portfolio course at Bridge House Art before dispersing to begin degree courses at Scotland's three main Art Schools. The diversity of the exhibiting artists work will offer a glimpse at the wide range of specialisation offered in Scotland's contemporary arts institutions and will include stop motion animation, installation, painting, printmaking and illustration.

Tiffany Bottomley, B.A. (hons.) Painting and Printmaking, Glasgow School of Art,
Christine Morrison, B.A. (hons.) Intermedia Art, Edinburgh College of Art, (currently; M.F.A. Art, Space and Nature, Edinburgh College of Art)
