Montages: “Through Fotheringay Maze” by Stephen Mead


Through Fotheringay Maze

by Stephen Mead

Artist Explanation

“These images are part of a series tentatively titled “Through Fotheringay Maze”,

a series of montages and mixed media, which had a decades-long hibernation period.

They are dedicated to the British musician Sandy Denny

in addition to her song about Mary Queen of Scots imprisoned at Fotheringay castle.

Ultimately, l hope to create a short film using the various “stills” as captured here,

with a narrative poem. Thank you for viewing this work-in-progress”
