".....the sensation  of  light  accompanying  another  sensation  or  thought”

Image for Art At Advent, an advent calender for St.Johns Church Peterborough,
with 25 different artists creating a piece for each day of advent.
I was lucky enough to be Day 1, Sunday December 1st.
 
 
My artwork is rooted in Photography.
I have been working over the years to find new ways to
 expand just exactly what constitutes as photography.
What is a Photograph?
The use of light to create an image?
Chemicals that change and react, due to exposure to a light-source?
Why does the focal plane not actually represent what we see?
This enquiry forms the strand of  my work called Photism.
 

My work has built it's own kind of eco-system over the years.
I use components of my work again and again,
re-photographing, photocopy-ing drawings and prints,
 taking my images and using them
to VJ with,  then taking screenshots from that and using
these images to create elements for new work. 

 In recent years I have meandered into the figurative and 
mixed media realm, the process has been very enjoyable and the
work is a lot more playful, so I'm told.
IT STILL STEMS FROM MY PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK, THOUGH THE FRUIT MAY HAVE
FALLEN A BIT FURTHER FROM THE TREE, HOWEVER THE PROCESS
OF RE-PHOTOGRAPHING, vj'ING, PHOTOCOPING, AND COLLAGING WITH THIS
CREATES A VERY INTERESTING FEEDBACK LOOP THAT IS EVER-GROWING,
AND EVER CURIOUS.......
  
 email me with any questions,  comments or feedback on my work.
