Quick Facts
traditional, photography

Using traditional photographic material to investigate the boundary between representational artistic creation, based on natural form, and absolute concrete creation, where abstraction takes over and form becomes a compositional structure. The object is always evident in my imagery thereby allowing temporality to remain and combine the subject with the object.

Landscape plays a major role in my visual language, particularly the landscape of Scotland, and serves as a source, motif and starting point for my work as it is at once recognisable and more importantly triggers a primal emotive response.
