My work is nostalgic, and metaphoric. It is a physical representation of the inner consciousness, and memories past. The concept of memory, how it can change, and evolve almost with a life of it's own, turning wild, unkept and hiding the clarity that the original held once before was my starting point. Images reflecting a sense of nostalgia, memory, youth and loss were of great interest to me, I find them emotionally loaded, and evocative. My work is a film, of moving pictures, telling a story, but not completely spelling it out. I would love these images to ask the viewer to piece them together, to make the connections, and recognise the similarities. They depict the inner-self, and the contrast. The contrast between subtle and harsh, good and evil, natural and unnatural. There is a strong focus on the face, and hands, as I find them the most evocative and compelling elements of the human form to work with, as well as a taste of mythic metaphor. My installation, combining film, and draped sheets to create a cinematic experience which moves with a breeze, as memories are ever moving and changing. I love the idea of this movement, and I find it really beautiful. I feel it is pensive, and accentuates this idea of the inner thought.
