Abstractions

These poetic images of a transient nature are captured on paper before they shift and fade in the light. As an artist who uses alternative photographic processes, I create these works by hand. Exposing my lumen prints to sunlight, I draw colour and imprints from their chemical coated surfaces. The resulting abstractions found in my work are a consistent theme throughout. Abstractions of the natural world, botanical images leave their textured imprints upon the paper. Sun and shadow linger with luminescent traces as they cycle through a passage of time. These abstract poetic traces engage the viewer in a moment not unlike the gaze of the sun upon the paper. Meaning is found and made. A blurred and shadowed glimpse of this garden space where creation occurs.
