Coinciding with the exhibition of rare vintage prints by Francesca Woodman in the National Gallery of Scotland's Artist Rooms from the D'Offay Collection we are working with the artist's estate to present a survey of Woodman's tragically brief but brilliant career. She died aged just 22 but in the few years that account for her career she created an enduring body of photographic work that continues to fascinate and influence today. Woodman appears frequently in her exquisitely odd and unsettling silver gelatin photographs, her body often seeming to blend into her surroundings: caught in a state of metamorphosis she is not quite here, nor quite there. In others, she uses a variety of props to create strange and dreamlike tableaux tinted with melancholy. We are grateful to George & Betty Woodman and to Victoria Miro for their help in staging this important exhibition.
