Murray was successful in gaining funding from Arts Council England which allowed him to 1. I attended a number of professional development activities - Photogravure Master class at the Centre for Fine Print Research Bristol, Lith, Cyanotype, alternative processing, workshop at The Centre for Art and Photography, photo etching and screen printing workshops These alternative process workshops have ensured a greater understanding of historical & alternative techniques. The chemistry, materials, handling of the techniques that are capable of realizing unique qualities of tone, texture, definition & presence. 2. Experiment with new collaborators, explore, investigate, research and understand a new methodology and inform and develop a new visual language. I was able to explore landscape through textural & tonal characteristics of early photography processes, referencing early 20th century paintings made at Arenig, Fawr, Wales and especially the work of J.D. Innes and Augustus John. 3. I was able to develop a dialogue and build new networks with prominent artists, curators, gallery directors and master printers in the UK & internationally including Roger Watson, Curator Fox Talbot Museum, Lacock Abbey, artist Richard Billingham, Nicola Shipley, Director of GRAIN Projects, Will Troughton Curator of Photography, National Library Wales and David Drake, Director Ffotogallery, Wales & Diffusion Festival, Hans Rooseboom Curator of Photography, Rijksmuseum, Maartje van den Heuvel, Curator of photography, Special Collections, Leiden Institute, Martin Barnes Senior Curator of Photographs at The V&A Museum, London, Addie Elliott, Director at ElliottHalls Gallery, Amsterdam. 4. The extended period of creative development for me as an artist and my practice was vital. I was able to free up valuable time from my academic & commercial projects. This gave me the opportunity to challenge my present methodology and introduce new working practices that were informed through research engagement with other practitioners, curators, writers and historians.
