Photography is a technology of light currently linked to the digital era. My photomedia works are light-space-time constructs about ideas to do with light and luminous colour.
The works are abstract luminous colour fields in which the entire surface is both figure and ground to be experienced as a physical and aesthetic presence. They aim to invite an experiential engagement and evoke possibilities within the imagination of the viewer.
Borne out of the medium of digital photography and at the same time challenging aspects of the complex technology involved in the digital process, the works are created by subverting the digital camera’s modus operandi and forcing it to make sense of lighting conditions beyond the remit of its design. I hope my works engage an active participation as they frustrate the impulse to ‘read’ a photograph in the conventional way.
