As well as commissioning my first solo show, Rowan Arts selected one of my photographs to use as the poster image for the whole Islington Exhibits festival! Here are some examples…

Chasing Shadows – time based installation: Islington Exhibits 2013

From 15th-31st July 2013 Chasing Shadows will be shown as a large scale time based installation – a solo show as part of Islington Exhibits 2013.  For more information on the exhibition click here.

The installation, in an otherwise uninhabited space, is a large scale single screen projection in which frozen moments are  re-presented as transitory echoes of the original, each dissolving into the next in a slow, rhythmic loop.

This is a test of the projection at the point of near completion.  The projection is lined up exactly onto an area of the wall painted white, which is what makes it stand out so vividly from its surroundings.

The exhibition was commissioned as the winner of one of two Artists Awards.  For more information on the Artists Awards click here.

The exhibition is open every day from 10am-6pm every day until 31st July, at Unit 38 The Studios, Hornsey Street, London N7 8GR. Information here.

Chasing Shadows is a night journey – a sleepwalk through a silent world bereft of people.  As the quality of evening light transforms the everyday into a dreamlike state, familiar urban landscapes disappear underneath resilient vegetation.

Long exposure night photographs are hand printed using a lith technique (an alternative wet printing process) to create a degraded aesthetic closer to illustration than photography.  The very nature of the process ensures that each image is visually unique, and in this instance the choice of a now discontinued fibre based paper enforces a single edition body of work.
