Flower Flower Water Light in BORDERS

My image from my series Flower Flower Water Light will be part of the SHUTTERHUB BORDERS exhibition, part of the MARCHLAND season of performances and talks.

The exhibition runs from 15th January – 16th April 2018 at The Bridewell Theatre, St Bride Foundation, Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 8EQ.

The Private View is on 12th January from 6.30-9.30pm – everyone is welcome; RSVP to info@shutterhub.org.uk

The exhibition also extends online, more details to follow…

Flower Flower Water Light is a travel diary of chaotic beauty and colourful abstraction, documenting a road trip through the landscapes of the UK, France, and Spain. Avoiding any deliberate regional classification, I allowed the images to form chronologically throughout my own journey and experiences, unifying the three countries into one emotional state.  Using triple exposures on 35mm slide film I chose to blend and to overlay flowers, plants, the land, and ripples of sunlight on the surface of the sea, thereby recording my journey in a series of ethereal images that emulate memory and movement through time and place.

You can see more images from this series on my website.

 

I’m also very excited to have been chosen to feature on the exhibition flyer:

Ophelia 4

Ophelia #4

This image is part of a series that explores the story of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, made in response to studying previous artistic interpretations of the text. 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.

After creating these underwater photographs I repeatedly printed and re-photographed them using lo-fi techniques to simultaneously intensify and degrade the images. Whilst the title image is a composite of two photographs, the remainder are all single full frame images. In the final stage I used out-of-date Polaroid film to make water-based emulsion lifts onto textured watercolour paper; the destructive yet delicate nature of the process continuing the themes of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.

Do You Like Love? is showing as part of the Photomonth East London Photography Festival.
