Shapeshifter

Blending abstraction and surrealism, my aim for this collection is to present graceful, poetic images that inspire imagination and contemplation. By removing contextual information, the photographs are designed to pose questions—rather than convey facts—and thus remain open to individual interpretation.

I’m looking to achieve an organic aesthetic derived from warm hues and earth tones, while strategically placed accents in pastel colours result in a curiously synthetic appearance. The graphic elements are intended to encourage active eye movement around each picture through the juxtaposition of rigid, formal structures against subtle textures and delicate transparency.

Truly abstract photographs demonstrate the enormous power of the frame as a means of selection and isolation—I create these pictures following a rigorous process of reduction and refinement. I produce these images as large format, wall-hanging artworks to decorate contemporary interiors.
