When I started my Art practice, it wasn’t just what was in front of the lens that interested me. I wanted to introduce an element of abstraction by applying post-production techniques to the finished piece. The aim being to encourage the viewer to experience familiar landscapes afresh. Recently, I have become intrigued by the negative image (something which has been lost with digital capture) when working up ideas for possible compositions.

However, these images remained somewhat prescriptive, i.e. my vision of a subject which might or might not resonate with an audience.

In response to this, I embarked on my current project “Inversions”. I am moving in a more abstract and conceptual direction. Gone is any attempt at a prescriptive approach to subject matter. I am engaged in offering a more permissive interpretation of my images to the viewer, fostering interaction and encouraging the audience to imbue the images with their own emotions and memories.

All images are in small limited editions and available for purchase. Please use the contact form to get in touch for further information on pricing and print sizes.
