Surfaces … textures … abstracted visions
I derive inspiration for my art work from diverse areas. These include, but are not limited to, my interest in medieval/gothic architecture, Victorian illustration, Japanese art and nature.
I am also drawn to distressed, grungy and decaying surfaces. These may be in the form of old brick walls, rust, layers of peeling paint, etc. I like the idea that layers can not only hide, but also reveal earlier histories. This influences my creativity when creating art or looking for photographic subjects.
With my photography I often feel compelled to capture the many abstracts that surround us; whether they be from nature or man made structures; to be able to extract something extraordinary from the ordinary. This is always an adventure of revelation.
