Celloscapes


As a doctoral student, I was told I had “cellos on the brain.”  This very short series stemmed from the idea that I “see” cellos everywhere.  I started to imagine parts of the cello in everyday landscapes, and I merged images of my own instruments with local landscapes here in Durham, NC.  Of my short series, this is one I hope to revisit.  Each piece took from 12 to 26 hours to create.

The Fiddle Heads Celloscape was made at John Pringle‘s house.  Pringle made two of my instruments, including my Scottish Wildcat cello.  The Cello Road image is the hill near the Nasher Museum in Durham.  The Train Tracks image was made near my old home, Epworth Hall at Duke.
