The work explores the relationship between texture and movement. Using a body of photographic processes exploring methods of Art and Science. Each piece of work is developed in the darkroom exploiting the photography equipment to create a set of unique prints all inspired by mark making.
The work is highly influenced by Jackson Pollock’s intuition of using movement of the body to bring a painting to life. Similarly to my prints I use motion of the body to edit and modify the developed subject to create texture and visual movement within each print.
The art is presented through a collection of prints created through darkroom processes each developed subject is combined and explored through a variety of mediums including; Victorian encaustic methods, microscopic techniques, live sculpture, and collage. Movement is key within the practice developing the beauty of texture increasing the depth created.
“Ever since I was a post graduate producing these wonderful unique works of art I realised that this body of work provokes the thoughts and imagination of the viewer. It’s sits on the very boarder of both surreal and realist. It creates a moment of questioning the imagination and what visually we can decipher.”
