“Stela, also spelled stele (Greek: “shaft” or “pillar”), plural stelae, standing stone slab used in the ancient world primarily as a grave marker but also for dedication, commemoration, and demarcation.”

Encyclopedia Brittanica

Stele (2012) is a silent film that marked the end of my stay in Clashnettie Arts Centre, Aberdeenshire. The totemic George Wyllie sculptures point out a way skyward while the surroundings are shrouded and uncertain. Looking back, I think that a sense of nostalgia is written into these images, and a certain reflection on the severity of the sculptures and the pliancy of the mists and the water.
