Photographs capturing moments of light from around the world. Sometimes the photographs have been taken whilst travelling, so they are blurry and slightly grainy. This adds to their authenticity in being a part of life. A conscious decision to avoid a capture of “perfect” shots, because often light comes in to our lives in our moments of brokenness. This working collection is related to that raw, authentic movement of light into human lives around the world, in poignant moments of destiny.
The photography is very simple and raw. Whether it's a blurry ray of sunshine, or a grainy walk in the forest, or a wholesome plate of comforting food. Moments of life and time in their elementary forms, to remind us that we are still on our journey of inspiration, art and between two worlds...
An exploration of colour, destiny and intuition. This is the starting point for the canvas to embark on the journey of transformation and representation. The colours lead the artistic interpretation of what the eyes behold.
I am fascinated by cotton, by its timeless elegance and versatility in protecting the human from the elements of weather and time. It is both an adornment of life and a shroud for the journey to the hereafter.
This is an exploration of sound and colour. One of my most favourite sounds is hearing laughter in the wind. It evokes a distant memory of running with and against the wind, as a child hands outstretched, and bursting into peals of laughter at the simple joy of it.
