Rachel Tennant is a landscape architect, poet and photographer. Her work is an exploration of landscape and people—the tentative relationship of people to the land through ownership, use and displacement; the cultural heritage of landscape through language, place and memories; and our perceptions of beauty, nature and wildness. She aims to distil a physical and emotional response to a location that captures and renders the ‘spirit of a place’. For her it is hard to separate the words and the image from the place and more increasingly her work has combined all these art forms together.
Rachel’s work has been included in Poetry Scotland, Vernal Equinox, the Scottish Writers Centre 10 year anthology; Earthlines; The Joy of Living; Brushes with War pamphlet; Glasgow Review of Books; Pushing Out the Boat; the Arts Council; the Glasgow Anthology, ‘Tip Tap Flat’; Glasgow Women’s Poets anthology; Prole Magazine; Glasgow University’s Glasgow to Saturn.
