- the sun in the trees in the hedgerow outside coming in through the window of the barn. As the leaves moved in the breeze, the patches of sunlight danced and then as the sun set, the whole scene faded slowly until it was just an ordinary wall in an ordinary barn again.
I had my little IXUS camera with me and managed to record 2 minutes of hand-held video which I later edited and added a soundtrack too. I just really liked the video and the way it captured a moment that probably only occurs once or twice a year - like the solstice sun at Newgrange. I had no idea what to do with it, like most of my personal work, but entered it into the Ormston House Spring Member's Exhibition on the off-chance. To my amazement and delight, it was chosen as one of the works for the show by the invited curator Haizea Barcenilla.
This is my fourth time of trying to get into the Ormston show and it is a great start to 2014 to be showing a work at this highly regarded gallery.
