Perfect for small budgets, prints include a selection of interesting trees and plants, a striking section of rock (which reminds me of the Boyle family), and an impressive bird – a new image from the series Heralds (faded glory).

The fair is on Sunday 27th July, from 12-7pm at Alma Street and Inkerman Road, NW5, London

There are two stages, and lots of lovely food and goodies for sale on Alma Street. Inkerman Road is also transformed into an outdoor art gallery filled with exhibitions, print sales and art workshops.  This is where you’ll find me and my Ophelia prints – with complete sets and individual prints for sale.  I might also be showing some new work too – more on that later.

This is my first year at the festival so I’m very excited to be taking part! Fingers crossed for good weather!

Ophelia #1-6

Ophelia #1-6 is an exploration of the story of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, made in response to studying previous artistic interpretations of the text such as Waterhouse and Millais.  Combining underwater digital photography with alternative printing methods, this series studies the destruction and turmoil that lies beneath the romanticism and serenity suggested in traditional representations of her fate, both in image and process.

This is a limited edition run of 30 sets of hand made original prints, signed recto and mounted on conservation grade board. Print size 12cm x 9cm, mount size 30cm x 42cm.

After creating these underwater photographs I repeatedly printed and re-photographed them using lo-fi techniques to simultaneously intensify and degrade the images. In the final stage I used the now discontinued Polaroid 669 film to make water-based emulsion lifts onto textured watercolour paper; the destructive yet delicate nature of the process continuing the themes of the subject matter.

I’ve just made a few more editions of Ophelia #1-6, if you would like to buy single images or a set, please get in touch!

Ophelia #1 (from Ophelia 1-6, Edition 4) – Polaroid Emulsion Lifts

Original Polaroid Emulsion Lift onto acid free water colour paper.  Signed recto, mounted on conservation grade board.  Each print is unique and handmade by me.  1 in a set of 6 images, from a limited edition run of 30 sets.

Image size – approximately 12cm x 9cm, mount size A3.

Prints are available as single images or sets.  For more information please contact me.

Shot underwater, the photographs are made into Polaroid 669 prints and soaked in a hot water bath to lift the emulsion containing the image from the paper beneath. The emulsion is then floated onto water colour paper and arranged into position. The very nature of the process continues the theme of the subject matter, and ensures that each original handmade print is completely unique in its tones and arrangement.
