Joanna Foster Micro Residency / Printmaker in residence

Many stories have led me to North Uist. Stories I have heard in songs by Julie Fowlis. Tales of a childhood revisited in the weavings of Angus MacPhee. I live on the opposite coast of Scotland, but have wanted to travel to this land’s edge for some time.

This place is like no other I have seen. It makes me think that a giant walked over the land, making footprints that have filled in with water. Watery footprints separating and joining mounds of land. I had imagined a rocky landscape, but all is soft and rounded. The earth is tufty and springy. Everything low to the ground, crouching, snug to the sea.

The week begins brightly, the sky is clear and blue, meeting a teal green sea. Everyone is smiling, glad of the fine weather, at last. A good day to take the bus to Eriskay. Conversations on land, off land, as the bus crosses water and scores a line from top to bottom.

On Tuesday I go exploring on foot around Lochmaddy, walking towards the Hut of Shadows. I will return to make this walk each day. Standing at the end of an old pier I can feel the warmth of the sun. I have a small bag with me and pick out grasses as I walk. There are many textures and subtle woody shades of yellow.

Seaweed and fishing rope. Monotypes reveal a positive and a negative image.

Laying out monotypes and embossed prints made during the residency for my talk on Thursday. Prints are pocket sized, reflective, like a diary entry relating to each day’s walk and experience. A visualisation of walking practice reveals a journal of encounter and experience.

I am using monotype for its immediacy and versatility, to take impressions of grasses and findings collected during walks around Lochmaddy. Crisp lines, look like drawing, feel like walking.
