Notes

'My house is absolutely full of still life objects which I've collected over the years and often now I merely start off with a notion, a symbol of one or two of these objects. They seem to group themselves in my
mind automatically and my picture is really an extension of this notion...' (W. Gillies, Still Life with Honesty, 1970, Films of Scotland Collection, Scottish Screen Archive).
