Wendy McMurdo has often worked with plants and flowers as themes, using digital methods to explore the symbolism of the flower and plants as transient and mutable.

As part of an RSA residency at Glasgow Print Studio, she has experimented with the exposure of flowers directly to light sensitive plates, capturing plants at various stages of the life cycle. The resulting images with their 'ghost' shadows and variable focus, refer back to the earliest photographic experiments where objects - often plant specimens - were exposed to light sensitive plates.

In many of these experiments, she has used orchids. Representative of desire, fecundity and intense beauty, the orchid is also one of the most popular flowering plants, globally produced in huge numbers. Collecting and working with these plants in the studio, she became interested in the extended time it took for these plants to die back, documenting the change in composition as they did so.

The resulting prints - which use traditional as well as contemporary imaging techniques - look at the natural world through a lens mediated by technology. Aware of the complex relationship between science, nature and commerce that are all implicated when we look at something as apparently simple as a flower.

Victoria Crowe studied at Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London, before being invited to join Edinburgh College of Art in 1968, where she taught drawing and painting until 1998.

Over the last 35 years Victoria Crowe, one of Scotland’s leading painters, has established herself as a painter whose work is instantly recognisable. While the full range of her painting covers landscape, still lifes, portraits, self-portraits and interiors, much of her work defies such precise categorisation.

She has been described as ‘one of the most vital and original figurative painters currently at work in Scotland’.

Her work is represented in a large number of public and private collections. She lives and works in the Scottish Borders and Venice.
