About my artwork
My work attempts to take the camera out of it usual context and utilise it as a canvas. The work is experimental/ Neues Sehen.
My aim is to take the camera out of its normal context and utilise it as a canvas, on which I paint with light.
The work is subjective a visual meditation, it aims to bring about a process of visual osmosis allowing one to step beyond the horizon. Thus, offering the viewer the opportunity to explore ones own existence.
The images are first sketched then constructed, with out the use of computer manipulation. I begin with a basic theme, that evolves endlessly to wards the conclusion that has no beginning and no end. The paintings are an assemblage of light and colour an ephemeral sculpture captured on camera, like some distant nebula.
My work is influenced by the paintings of Rothko, Kandinsky and the process of existence , which invite the viewer into the work as opposed to pushing the viewer away, they are meditative works.
The images examine our role in the endless journey. In reductionism terms, we are composed of atoms, nevertheless in the context of the Gestalt school of thought the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Therefore, a set of building bricks are irrelevant till they are constructed in to an emerging property, again and again and again, such is the endless journey from deconstruction to reconstruction in whatever shape or form.
