Artist statment

 

In my work I explore experience, describing perception and the passing of time, marked by changing of light.  Light as transition to create images between positive and negative, visible and invisible, shadow and light.  Natural qualities of light to capture incidental and fleeting moments in every day life.

 

I am interested in the concept of space, seeing space as psychological, space as experienced with the outline of skin as borderline and space outside our body as one ‘continuum’.  The inner working of the ‘conscious' and ‘unconscious’. The notion of psychological and physical space as they relate to each other and influence how we perceive space/place.

 

‘Our conceptualising about space is irrevocably bound up with our conceptualising about ourselves.  What we think it means to be human is allied with our ideas about the cosmological space in which we conceive ourselves to live.’ (B. Riley)
