in the summer of 2013 i was invited out to pskov in russia to join a plein-air, a group of invited artists working outdoors.
the 12 day event culminated in an exhibition of work created by the 16 artists in the school run by artists and group leader oleg tsvetkov.
for my own work i used the event to create a follow on from my resting highlands project, a study of buildings and machinery left to rest without disturbance or interference.
my connection with the event came from the twining between the cities of perth in scotland and pskov in russia.
many thanks to oleg and the friends of pskov in perth, uk.
