Resume Statement

RESUME

GOAL: To express in images my experience of the relationship between people; the relationship between man and nature.

BIO 

Currently      Photographer working on special projects and making books.

 


Formerly       

Freelance Arts writer and critic for local media in South Africa.

Researcher and Lecturer in Art History/Philosophy at the University of Johannesburg.

                       Prior to that museum      professional officer at the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

            

The shift from 'onlooker' to 'doer', happened gradually, and has now become a major occupation.
The move towards fine art photography was prompted in 2009 when three incidents steered me in this direction: The online gallery for fine art photos, Camera Obscura, presented a feature on me. Later the same year I received an invitation for a solo exhibition at a new Waterkant Art Gallery in Cape Town.  The work sold well to local and international collectors, and was also exhibited in New York City.

INTENTION

Im exploring the multi-layeredness of humans interacting with their environment - natural and built interiors, through movement. The associations awakened by the visual appearance and disappearance of form, distortions that happen when line and form change from being in- and out-of-focus, intrigues me. In-camera techniques as well as processing and printing on different surfaces, from fine art paper to aluminum, through printing processes like Light Jet and Giclee all have special characteristics which I like to consider. By blending photo's into layers I hope to achieve the effect of entering a kind of psychological space where the unconcious can be read in non-literal language, i.e. the language of gesture of the body language. 
Other concerns are the effect of erosion (physical) in nature and through traumatic experiences in people.  Erosion also seen in the distortions of shapes seen in reflecting surfaces. In short, my images attempts to help the viewer see underneat the surface - physically and psychologically.

For my  current project, broadly exploring people moving, which should end in an Artist Book, printed on fine art paper in limited edition, I collaborate with friends. They are not professional dancers, and mostly bodies that are not shy showing the effects of time, in skin-texture and body shape. The title for this project is: Still Life in Motion, to be published in September 2015.
