Mr. F and I do a lot of exploring in unfamiliar territory. Weekends often find us driving down new roads to see what we can find. Since we only stay in each place for a short time, we usually get to know the places we pass by sight, but never discover the people behind them or the stories they have to tell.
These collages by Edinburgh artist Mairi Timoney create a visual exploration of unfamiliar places. We’re given hints at the stories behind each place– a line of clothes strung between trees, a storefront, a suburban garage. The glimpses, like my view out our car window, give just enough information to drive the imagination to create our own stories for each new setting.
