Your Lips To The Blessed Surface (2023)
Digital photographic images. Natural elements & landscape 'durational' images photographed & edited using analogue and digital media.
This series of abstracts plays with the idea of a hidden 'language' within wild places. In particular, those threatened by pollution, government legislation, landowners, and developers.
The original photographs cover durations of time ranging from a few seconds to one or two hours. This process is dependent on location, weather conditions, and available light. I then use layering and digital montage to create the final image. Though photography is at the core of this body of work, I am attempting to find a way to move beyond representation. To discover a hidden aspect or message in the land.
