A Scottish artist, has taken takes a unique approach to document the north east town of Montrose.

Dominique Cameron began walking the same line from the town’s docks to the air heritage museum for 12 weeks. 


Everything and everyone she encountered on this line will form part of her new show, Baltic Street Notebook, which will open on June 4 in Montrose.


The work crosses media from drawing and painting to text and film.

Ms Cameron said: “ As an artist my practice considers the role of walking within an urban environment and through that process listening to the stories that emerge from the architectural space.

“It involves drawing a line on a map and walking that line many times as is possible within the time limits of the project. 
“What I find on the route, physically and conversationally forms part of the composition and can take the form of drawing, painting, text and film.

“All of these components add up to a portrait of place, a woven memory and a fiction of itself.”
