My work primarily involves photography, making images from a subjective often abstract view point, not necessarily aiming for technical perfection, depending on the subject. The intention is to create images that are contradictory involving the deconstruction and reconstruction of images, extending the viewers perception by layering, sometimes adding coloured inks to reprinted images. The different pieces are linked by abstract qualities, occasionally using collage, superimposing related or repeated motifs, adding another dimension to the work.
These five images shown, are part of a series ‘Trees Are Us’, an installation of twelve black and white photographs of local winter trees, printed on tracing paper, hung away from the wall in rows of four. They have an appearance of Japanese calligraphy, as though they are speaking to us; these trees are us.
